Remix OS 2.0 does multi-window Android on the Nexus 9 and Nexus 10

Multi-window on Android is no longer a feature reserved for custom UIs, with limited app compatibility: with the release of Android N, even in this early preview state, multi-window for the masses is making its impact felt. But while Android is finally getting the split-screen mode we’ve longed for, what about a more PC-like free-floating-window layout? That’s a much trickier question, and while the framework’s there, the implementation is clearly still a work in progress. But Android N isn’t the only floating-window game in town, and even before its preview release landed, we got our multi-window Android fix with the help of Remix OS. While our recent Remix OS coverage has focused on PC hardware, today we’ve got some eminently mobile news to share with you today, as Remix OS 2.0 ROMs land for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 10 tablets.

That Nexus 9 support gives us a nice way to compare Jide’s effort with Google’s own Android N multi-window, with both solutions compatible with the same hardware. And for users who held on to Google’s previous tablet, this Nexus 10 release could be a nice way to breathe some new life into otherwise forgotten hardware.

Users interested in trying either ROM out can find download links and installation instructions through the source link below. In addition to these new images for Nexus-series tablets, Jide’s also making available a Remix OS 2.0 for its own Remix Ultratablet, which owners should see arrive as an OTA update.
