google-chromebox-meetings-26When iOS 9 was announced, one of the features that Apple had boasted about was the ability for their larger iOS devices, such as iPads, to take advantage of multitasking features such as Split View and Picture-in-Picture, which for those unfamiliar basically lets you watch a video while browsing the web or running other apps at the same time.

That being said if you rely on Chrome on the iPad to get your surfing done, you might be interested to learn that the app has recently gotten an update. With the update, Chrome for iOS will now support both Split View and Picture-in-Picture, so if you love having multiple tabs opened at once while watching videos, this update just solved all your problems.

For those unfamiliar with Split View, it is as its name suggests, which splits the view of the browser and another app. This means that if you’re trying to do some research, you could open up Chrome and Split View with the Notes app, for example, so that you can take notes while reading up on the topic at the same time.

Alternatively you could open up both Chrome and Safari at the same time, essentially letting you surf multiple websites side-by-side. Unfortunately we’re not sure why Apple has not allowed Safari’s tabs to be split and viewed in Split View mode, but perhaps that is a feature that might arrive in the future, but for now this method will probably be the best.
