I like to listen to YouTube audio in Google Chrome and I also want to browse in Chrome at the same time? If I'm listening to something on YouTube and I get a call, I open another Chrome and I start browsing. When the call ends the audio and you to play it while I'm browsing in a second Chrome. They're not side-by-side, one is overlapped over the other. I just noticed over the last week that when I'm playing a YouTube video I can sometimes open another Chrome tab and start browsing in it while the audio still plays in YouTube. But this is hit-and-miss. Is there a way to make it work every time?

Open Recents, select the Multiwindow option. When presented with your recent apps, tap/swipe to go back (if you have gestures or nav buttons) and go select Chrome again in your launcher. Some tablets come with a Multiwindow panel which makes this faster.

Here I can open two S Internet sessions at once, but it should also work on Chrome (one of the few apps to support such dual instances)

alternatively, you can try the youtube music app for your iTunes and then browse with your browser

I don't think you can open 2 chrome browsers in split screen. But they are using alternative way to archieve the goal, which is open 1 youtube app and 1 chrome app in split view mode.

S Internet is Samsung Internet. It's shortened because of the sheer amount of Samsung Something apps available

so I don't want to use YouTube music. And I like using Chrome and not Samsung internet. I'm not trying to do side-by-side chromes. I want to be able to have 2 pages Overlapping each other. You know how you open one page and then you can have another Chrome on top. sometimes if I open for 5 pages And I keep coming back to hit play in YouTube And I open another Chrome page. The audio from YouTube will still play while I'm browsing or doing whatever. If I want a phone call And YouTube pauses in Google, and I start browsing in a Page that. I opened during the phone call, the second the Other person hangs up the audio starts playing while I have a full screen Chrome open
