How to View Two Chrome Tabs Side By Side in Android 7 Nougat

Android 7 comes with a neat little split view that allows you to pin two apps side by side. The two apps that are pinned can be used simply by tapping them making multitasking on an Android device very easy. Tablet users might get more out of the feature since they have a larger screen to work with. The feature is awesome and Chrome is built to take even more advantage of it. You can pin any two Chrome tabs side by side and switch between them like they were two separate apps.


Step 1. Open Chrome. It doesn’t matter if your phone is in portrait or landscape view.

Step 2. Tap and hold the recent apps button. You will enter split view.

Step 3. Tap the more button in Chrome and select the ‘Move to other window’ option.

Step 4. The tab will be moved to the other half of your screen.

Note: You need not have any recent apps available in the recent apps menu. The recent apps button is pressed simply to enter split view.
