We’ve shown you what the folks at Paranoid Android have been working on, and since the testing stage of Halo began a few days ago, it was revealed that support for multiple notifications was lacking. It looks like this feature has been added, and a preview video showcases it in action.
As a refresher, Paranoid Android has been working on a way to implement Facebook Messenger’s “chat head” feature into all apps. Early results show that they have done a wonderful job. With their Halo feature, clicking a notification bubble (“chat head”) opens an overlaying applet to tend to the notification without having to close the app that you were using. It’s simply brilliant, and makes notifications and multitasking a breeze.
This new video shows multiple notifications working very smoothly, a feature that did not work the last time we saw Halo. To switch between notifications, all you have to do is hold down the notification bubble that appears on the screen and swipe until the notification you want to use is highlighted.
This is incredibly cool, and I can’t wait to try it myself.
