    How do you get YouTube to work with Multi Window? It's not in the apps tray.

    Hopefully they just had bugs and we will end up getting them later.

    Wow. This makes no sense whatsoever.

    It does suck, but I think we'll get it with the first update we get. No idea why they disabled/forgot/whatever them but they benefit in no way from it, so hopefully we'll see it soon

    i checked out the demo today and couldnt figure out how to make any of the apps work in the multi window view . can somebody at least tell me what apps will actually work ?

    Yeah, it's kinda disappointing. The only apps in there are Email (not gmail ), Gallery, Internet, Messaging, Polaris Office, S Note, and Video Player.

    I installed super video and it added itself to the multiview bar, so it appears that some apps just need to be coded to support it.

    I wonder if someone could pull the Youtube and other missing multi-window apps from a different version of the phone (International or another carrier) and we could slap that on our phones and have them work in multi-window?

    If I recall correctly, it only takes about one or two lines of code to make your app recognized by multi-window.

    You can use YouTube through the browser and it will work with multi Window feature.

    Stop lying. I called Samsung and they said apps like YouTube, Gmail and maps aren't supported yet, but will be in the future. They also went on to say Verizon did not disable any apps for that feature.

    He isn't lying.



    At around 1:04 in that video (and in the still preview frame), you can see the Youtube icon in the multi-window app list. The person demo-ing it actually clicks on and opens up Youtube in multi-window, as well.


    If I'm not mistaken, the Note tablet didn't have those apps listed at launch, but there's a decent chance it's getting those apps added in its JB update with the other multi-window features.

    I have the International Unlocked GN2 (running on Straight Talk as a test), YouTube, gmail, twitter, facebook, chrome and others are supported in multiview. I picked up the VZW GN2 today and noticed they don't support those, I am taking it back tomorrow. If you are are willing to wait for an update from Verizon, plan on it being a long while. Sorry VZW, this was it for me, your bloatware, lack of vendor provided support, battery life and slow updates...I think I am done.
    There is no place like 127.0.0.1

    Ask for proof instead of calling someone a liar. I don't care if it was Samsung or Verizons fault, they held the release of this phone for ovef a month, and yes we did get multi-window but a semi crippled version. I think in a month they. could've figured that out. Oh wait, nevermind, thdy were too busy printing their logo on the home button.

    Hopefully they update this pbone faster and more often than they did with my Gnex.

    This has to be a joke...right?

    The whole reason I wanted this phone was because of the multi-view features. It was the phone's main selling point for me. Why the hell would they remove it!?

    I am really bothered by the bloat. I also hate that the email app won't retrieve my emails older than 2 weeks even though I have it set to retrieve the last month or 100 emails.
    I don't believe Verizon did anything to the multiview simply because of my previous post.
    Just because it works elsewhere doesn't mean Verizon blocked it. It could very well just need to be updated.
    Of course being on Verizon, we all know how long that can take.
    When my contract ends in August, I'm going to have to leave Verizon.

    Edit: On xda someone is claiming they spoke with both Samsung and Verizon and they were told the multiview on Verizon's note 2 does need an update to add those missing apps.
    They went on to say that it is rumored that the update is coming in January.
    Knowing we only have 14 days for returns, and Verizon's track record with updates, I have two choices.
    If root is acquired within the next 13 days I'll probably keep it. If not, I have no choice but to return it.

    typical behavior from "joe the insider"

    joe, you need to get over the fact that your company is the worst carrier out there in terms of customer relations
    the only reason why verizon is still alive is because of their network

    thank you tari and infmethod for pointing out that I was in fact correct!!!

    everyone, its issues like this that make root an absolute necessity!!!
    the note 2 is an amazing device but we have to go in and clean up this sh*t from verizon

    I have to agree with him, Verizon is the worst, excluding network. That's saying a lot coming from Sprint as I was just under a year ago. My Galaxy Nexus, which is supposed to be the most pure version of Android, has barely been updated. I am not someone that roots a phone often, but I had to with that just to get Jelly Bean on there. The wait was insane for it being a Nexus device.

    Not too big of a deal. Just use the web browser option, and access Youtube.com.
