Multi-window update now available for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 2

As promised, T-Mobile is now delivering the multi-view update for their Samsung Galaxy Note 2, bringing users the ability to run multiple apps simultaneously in a windowed view. The update, which measures in at 73.29MB, also fixes a few bugs including missing calendar events and an unresponsive Gmail app. The update keeps the same Jelly Bean version as the phone’s previous software, Android 4.1.1.

Multi-window view is one of the most unique features to be added to Samsung’s TouchWiz interface, and it is designed to take advantage of the abundant screen real estate of the Note 2. However, not all apps will be compatible. Developers still need to add a few snippets of code to provide plug-and-play usability with Samsung’s fancy multi-tasking method.

As of this morning several members over at the XDA forums have reported receiving the new update. If you own the Note 2 on T-Mobile, you might try forcing the update via the settings menu.

    lol, T-Mobile was first to release N2 but last to get multi window?

    • Brian Menius

      Reasonably certain AT&Fee doesn’t have it yet, no?

    • nmw407

      the death star network still doesn’t have it. And you know what T-Mo has? Wi-fi calling!

  • Brian Menius

    I pulled mine down this morning. It looks more “complete” than what Verizon managed to half-bake if complaints about Verizon’s version are accurate. I wouldn’t know, because it wouldn’t even work on the demo model I tried at VZ a few days ago. o.0

    Just bring multiview to the Sprint S3

    • Layman76

      You think that’s fair to the other Note 2 users? That’d be an incredibly stupid move for Samsung, COMPLETELY skipping over the other users who paid extra for that specific feature. So wait your fucking turn.

      • simpleas

        that didnt call for such a harsh attitude

        • Layman76

          You… you’re right. That was uncalled for. I don’t know what got into me.

          • simpleas

            +1 yeah i hear ya. im guilty of such hostility as well. But I realized being pissed and mad at online comments is a very sad / embarrassing way to live.

      • Alex Alexander

        Yeah!!!

      • jon Hutchinson

        Yes its fair. The internation s3 already has it and has for quite awhile. So put that in your pipe and smoke it you selfish shirt lifter

      • toomuchgame441
