Samsung has released a firmware update for the Galaxy Note II to enable the split-screen multitasking feature.
According to Samsung-centric website Sammobile the Korean manufacturer has confirmed two updates for its newly released hybrid device, one for users in France and the other for the UK.
The new update, which is available to download now, allows users to run two apps on the screen simultaneously, in a similar fashion to the Pop-up Play functionality introduced with the flagship Galaxy S III.
It was also revealed the new software is compatible with Google products, including YouTube and Gmail, and as a result users will be able to multi-task more effectively, viewing the UI of each app being engaged in equal half screen windows.
The new firmware can be installed by navigating to the Settings menu on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, tapping About Device and select Software update. If the update is available, users will be prompted to follow onscreen instructions to install the update.
