Own an iPad and Google Chrome is your browser of choice? Good news are coming your way. Chrome for iOS 9 supports your multitasking needs.
Apple boasted about it some time ago, but it just became reality, starting Thursday. When you want to read something and simultaneously take notes, Split View is there to help you. For those unfamiliar with the feature, as the name suggests, Split View allows two apps being run at the same time. In this case, Google Chrome and Notes. Add the multiple tabs and all your problems are solved.
Running two apps side by side with Split View is particularly useful. If you’re looking for more, Chrome for iOS 9 supports your multitasking needs by also supporting Slide Over and Picture-in Picture. Browse through websites and check out the latest video simultaneously is a clear advantage.
For now, Chrome supports Split View on the soon-to-arrive iPad Pro, and iPad mini 4, as well as iPad Air 2. Slide Over and Picture-in-Picture are available for all Apple tablets running on iOS 9. If you’re looking for the same options in older tablets, Split View and Slide Over aren’t fully compatible.
Another option that was introduced with the Chrome for iOS 9 is Autofill. Regardless of your views on online security and how smart it is to allow your always connected device to store sensitive data, Autofill might come in handy when that tediously long credit card number has to be filled in once more. Autofill for iOS 9 is available for both desktop and mobile.
Facebook for iOS also updated a few things. The new features include visibility for any public post, wider search functions, as well as a reorganizing of the newsfeed to allow the integration of all the newly ranked posts. The upgrade is available both on the mobile app and the Web interface.
Chrome for iOS 9 supports your multitasking needs. Safari isn’t yet updated to split the workload or funload into multiple windows. Nonetheless, another alternative is to open Safari and Chrome and squeeze the juice out of running websites side-by-side.
While it’s unclear why Safari isn’t (yet) upgraded to support these multitasking features, Chrome is taking the lead. Go online and install the latest update.
