In a Reddit AMA, Android and Chrome UX director Glen Murphy confirmed that Google’s working on ways to make Android a more work-friendly platform. Thus, it will make it easier for users to multi-task.
“There are many things, like multi-window, that we’ve been spending a lot of time on — hopefully we can share more about this soon. We’re working on lots of things right now for N that, of course, we wish we had, you know, yesterday… But we’d spoil the surprise of N if we shared all of them. Split screen is in the works!” Murphy said.
