Multi-Window function coming to stock Android?

Multi Window function coming to stock Android?

Samsung were the first manufacturer to bring us the phablet category and with that came the multi-window technology. As device screens get bigger this multi-window feature is now making its way into other devices, the LG G3 and no doubt the G4, but what about the 6 inch screen, stock Android Nexus 6?


Well the day after Google officially released Android 5.1,  some uber-clever sorts found an AOSP framework Code Commit that has a reference to multi-window. Multi-window allows users to divide their display into two halves with each one running a different app.

Now this mention doesn’t give us a clue as to when it would be made available, or how it would work on a non-Galaxy Note Android phone, as lines of code for other features have been uncovered in the source, but never made it to fruition.

This year’s Google IO will be held May 28th and May 29th, so this feature may well be revealed along other developer options. Remember last year when Android L was mentioned? Of course this became the Android Lollipop 5.0 build.
