How to Use Google Chrome in Split Screen View on Android

With the launch of android 7.0 Nougat, we have got a new feature known as split screen view. In split screen view, we can simultaneously run two apps on the same screen. This is indeed the best feature of android 7.0 Nougat. The biggest advantage of this feature is that we can work on two apps simultaneously. Split screen view is by default supported by most android apps. But Google chrome for android doesn't go into split screen view directly.

If you have used chrome on android 7.0 then you might have seen that the long tapping the recent apps button don't send the chrome tabs in split screen view. But for other apps this method works. It is possible to run two chrome browser tabs in split screen view. The benefit is that you can work on two websites at the same time and no need to switch tabs. Split screen view also prevents page reloading when you switch between tabs. This saves your data and time.
