There are loads of great apps that work with Multi Window, and the two pre-installed chat options offer an excellent way to communicate and multi-task at the same time. Chat On allows you to chat across a wide variety of mediums, as well as being able to use the windows to choose files to send across to friends.
Hangouts, Google's own chat service, works in the same way but with a less rich interface if you're just after the chance to hang out and share some thoughts with friends on the go.
But both can sit there unobtrusively while you get on with the main task at hand so you can be in touch with friends and work at the same time.
Third party planning
Samsung has made a whole host of its own apps available for Multi Window, but there are loads more out there thanks to Samsung Apps and the Google Play Store. The likes of popular MX Player, PowerAMP and ANDChat are all Multi Window enabled, enhancing the power of your new favourite tablet.
This means that you'll always have access to music and movies, productivity tools, IM clients and more as you spend more time with your GALAXY Note 8.0 – so see what the future holds with the Multi Window function on your brand new and next-generation tablet!
