Galaxy Note 2 was recently released, and it seems to have a bunch of amazing new features. It can take a while to familiarize yourself with all those features, for example the multi-window feature. If you don’t know about this feature, or your Galaxy Note 2 doesn’t have multi-window installed then search for an update released for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that fixes this.

The multi-winodw feature of the Galaxy Note II is a split-screen feature that allows you to have two applications running on the same time on the screen of your phone. That can be really useful if you are looking to write an E-mail and browse the web at the same time or whatever you’re thinking of.

However, it seems that not all apps work with multi-window. Just a few Samsung apps, Google apps and third-party apps work in split screen.

If you are wondering which apps work with multi-window here’s the complete list that we were able to gather so far:

Samsung: S-Note, Video Player, Email, ChatON, Gallery, Browser, Messaging;

Google: Chrome, Gmail, Youtube, Google Talk & Google Maps.

Other apps: Facebook, Twitter & Polaris Viewer

P.S. How to enable and use multi-window?

To enable multi-window you have to press and hold the back button. Shortly, a menu bar should appear on the left side of the screen. That’s the menu with the list of apps that work in split screen. Select the two apps that you want to run simultaneously and that’s it.
