LG G3 with Android 6.0 dual view: lack of Google chrome?

I recently downloaded 6.0 to my phone and was looking to go on YouTube with my Chrome browser opened when lo and behold, that option is no longer available. It has now been replaced by Messaging and several Play apps that will never be used. Is there any way to get Chrome back as an option on dual view? Or will I have to get rid of the update?

Welcome to Android Central! Do you have the LG G3, or the Optimus L3? The G3 has an official 6.0 update, but not the Optimus L3, so if you're talking about the latter, did you root it and install a custom ROM?

Hello, I have the LG L3. I've had it since January 2015 if that helps things. I didn't mind some of the update fearures, but I use the dual view with chrome and YouTube far more than I would ever use the new features and I want it back.

As I mentioned above, I don't believe the Optimus L3 has an official Marshmallow update. Did you root the phone and install a custom Marshmallow ROM?

Ok, that makes more sense.:) In the list of apps for Dual View, are you able to scroll, either horizontally or vertically?

BTW, I'm going to move this to the G3 forum, where you'll probably get better advice from actual G3 users.

I can scroll up and down, but Chrome is nowhere to be found, when it was one of the first things I saw when activating the dual view before the update.

Yeah. I'm not saying I can't get onto Chrome from my phone, just that it's no longer an option for dual view and I was wondering if there was a way to get it back as such. Sorry for the confusion!

Do you have 6.0 on your Android with Chrome showing up as a dual view option? I was also wondering if this problem was specific to my phone's update.

Oh yeah, I understand that. Just wanted to make sure Chrome hadn't been disabled for some reason!

I don't have a G3--just seeing if I can help troubleshoot! I like the idea of uninstalling Chrome and reinstalling, as suggested by ralfyguy.

If one has root one can set any and all apps to be selectable for dual view. It's a good thing: [APP] LG MultiWindow Mod | LG G Flex

You can also enable all apps in dual view with a simple text build prop edit, but it's nice to have a limited list that you want to be able to select quickly.

Does the official 6.0 update include Chrome? I'd be shocked if it wasn't a standard app for dual view. I still see no reason why they don't allow all apps because every app I've tried works. Just putting this here for informational purposes.

No, it was an option for dual view, but now it's not. I don't get why they removed such a useful feature. I could watch a video or answer a text message without the chrome page I was on resetting. This update was pretty pointless to me.
