The brief mention of multi-window really doesn't give us a clue as to when such an app would be made available, or how it would work on a non-Galaxy Note Android phone. Back during the first month of 2014, a concept video showed how apps like WhatsApp, Snapchat, Twitter and YouTube could be used on Android within a multi-window application.

Google I/O 2015 will be held May 28th and May 29th. There is a possibility that we could hear something more about this during the annual developer conference. At last year's Google I/O, Android "L" was unveiled. This, of course, became the Android Lollipop 5.0 build.
