Samsung was supposed to launch the Galaxy Note 2 with a great little feature called multi-window, but the feature wasn’t quite ready for consumption the moment the device went on sale. It’s only been a short couple of days, though, and they’ve delivered an upgrade to bring us the functionality in timely fashion.
Multi-window allows you to use two different apps at the same time. Think of it as rudimentary desktop multi-tasking, except on this awesome, gigantic phone. The screen is certainly big enough for such a feature, and it actually does work pretty well. We still aren’t sure whether or not this feature can be used with apps from the Play Store but we’re working to find out.
In the meantime, you can see how multi-window works in the video above. Fast forward to 2:04 and tell me with a straight face that isn’t one killer feature that you’d love to have. If you have an unlocked Galaxy Note 2 you should be seeing a notification letting you know an update is available any moment now. [via SamMobile]
[Update]: once again, a video we embed from YouTube has been removed; talk about bad luck. We’re hot on the trail for another one.
