Google Rumored To Add Split-Screen Support In Android 6.1 Update
One thing about Android Marshmallow that has disappointed Android fans a bit is the lack of split-screen multitasking support. For many users it may not be much of an issue but for some who have devices with bigger screens, it is certainly something that Google should have included in the latest OS update.
However, there is good news for those people who feel the lack of split-screen support disturbing, they might not have to wait for the next major Android iteration for split-screen support.
According to rumors from a source of Android Geeks, the feature will be added in Android 6.1 update which is expected to be available sometime in June next year. Google had already confirmed it was working on multi-window support although there was no specific release window.
While 6.1 isn’t expected to be a huge update on its own, the addition of split-screen certainly does sound a pretty huge feature especially for tablet users. The update will also feature bug fixes as expected and a new improved app permissions interface.
Perhaps Google’s decision to release the update this soon might be influenced by the launch of their own tablet, (built and designed by Google themselves unlike Nexus tablets) Pixel C.
