Split screen on Android/iOS

Given the multitasking focus of the iPad Pro and iOS 11, it would be great to have the option to view the video feed from one of my cameras while in another app without having to split the screen. It’s the perfect use case for the Arlo Baby most specifically but could work for anything else you want to watch out of the corner of your eye.

Are you going to add picture in picture option for Android? Split screen isn't available on my Samsung Note 9 or Tab S4. Would be great, especially on tablet, to have picture in picture to keep an eye on specific camera.

Hey @Solarstar81,

 

I'm moving your post to the Arlo Idea Exchange Board, where the Arlo development team routinely reviews posts in the Arlo Idea Exchange to assess which features the community would like to see implemented. We greatly appreciate your contribution and will keep the status of this idea updated as we get new information on its potential implementation. Thanks for posting your idea!

I would like to be able to view 2 streams in full screen side-by-side / one above the other, on my ipad.

We shoud be able to make 'all live streams' fill the screen rather than just one full screen, or all thumbnails.

 

Youtube on Ipad has a floating video that can be viewed even when the app is minimised. Some websites like facebook do this with videos on desktop. It allows the user to use the device for other things while still watching the video.

 

This will also resolve the issue of not having an IP stream for 3rd party dashboards as the video can float on top of other smart apps making Arlo much more versatile than competitors.
