Gmail and YouTube coming to Verizon Note II multi-window mode soon

Gmail and YouTube coming to Verizon Note II multi-window mode soon
If you've got a Samsung Galaxy Note II and you've been enjoying the multi-window mode, but you wanted a bit more out of it, you're in luck. Samsung has confirmed that there will be an update soon to add support for the Gmail and YouTube apps in multi-window mode for the Verizon variant of the handset, which has not yet gotten the update.

The news comes directly from Samsung's USA support team, which replied to a question about it on Twitter. The answer was brief (as is the nature of Twitter), but direct, saying "‚ÄúThat feature will be available soon, please stay tuned for updates." So, Samsung is apparently working on adding more app support to the multi-window mode on the Verizon Note II, but no more is known. 

And, of course, it's also hard to say what exactly "soon" means. Depending on the topic and the company making the statement, "soon" could be anywhere from a couple weeks to about 6 months, and especially when Verizon is involved in an Android update, you never know how long "testing" can take.

This article is wrong. The original tweet was asking about the Verizon Note 2. That's because the Verizon Note 2 hasn't received the update at all. Note 2's with the update (i.e international and Sprint) have Gmail and Youtube as options in multiwindow.

yep this is true because the international version is having it right now. I'm having it right now. I wish they include more apps to be included in this feature.

What about the blocking mode that is missing on the Verizon Galaxy note 2, that allows the user to disable calls during the night time from all people except favorites? Will that be coming in this update?
