Google offers Chrome browser with Android 12 support for up to five windows. For example, users can group one or more tabs within a window, to make it easier to switch between certain groups of tabs when switching between apps, for example.
XDA Developers discovered the functionality of windows Inside Chromium and writes that this mode is enabled by default on Android 12. When this feature is enabled, users can choose to move a tab to a new window. This window works similarly to a window in the desktop version of Chrome. For example, windows share a Google account and history, but they can be viewed as groups of tabs independently of each other.
This means that different windows can also be seen as different applications if the user wants to switch between applications. Also, windows in split screen mode can be linked to other windows or other applications. The Android 12 version of Chrome allows users to open up to five windows, with unlimited tabs within each window. Windows also remains the same after restarting the smartphone.
With the release of Android 12 of Chrome, users also get a window management tool. Here they can see all open windows, including the number of tabs. They also see which tab is active within the window and in which window the user is now. Within this management tool, users can close, open or open a window in a split screen.
Previous Android versions of Chrome now also have a split-screen mode, where two windows can be opened side by side. This requires users to open another app in split screen mode besides Chrome. Then they can choose “Go to another window” under Chrome’s hamburger menu, which opens a second Chrome window. However, this second window closes once you exit split screen mode.
