Multi-Window OTA update for Sprint’s Galaxy Note II rolling out

One of the unique features of Jelly Bean running on the Samsung Galaxy Note II is the multi-window feature. It is so popular that Samsung decided to make it available on their Galaxy S III device. Oddly enough, when Samsung made the Galaxy Note II available for the U.S. market, the Jelly Bean build that shipped did not include the multi-window function, even though it was available on international versions.

The good news today is that Sprint has received the code to implement multi-window on Galaxy Note II devices and has completed their processes to prepare it for deployment to their users. According to Sprint, this feature and some other tweaks will start rolling out to device owners as an OTA update, L900VPALJC, starting today. Sprint indicates they anticipate all devices will be updated within five days. Along with the multi-window function, the update includes tweaks to the GPS lock settings, sending emails to the outbox when there is no coverage or when in airplane mode, and a text message notification that will beep when on a voice call.

If you are one of the early adopters of the Galaxy Note II and want to check for availability of the update, just head to Apps > Settings > System Update > Update Samsung Software > Check Now on your device.
