Google is fixing an “annoying” issue in Chrome OS: Android apps will now be able to run in the background from Chrome OS 64.
To this day, excluding the Spotify app, Android apps on Chrome OS simply freeze when the user stops viewing them in the foreground.
Chrome OS 64, which is currently available in beta, allows users to switch windows without apps interrupting their work.
In addition, Chrome OS 64 adds a split view mode similar to Windows 10.
In the split view of Chrome OS, just snap any window to the left or right of the screen and the system then fits in both side by side, making it easy to open multiple applications at the same time.
