Use Gmail alongside other iOS apps with iPad Multitasking

Quick launch summary

When using an iPad, you’re now able to multitask with Gmail and other iOS applications. You can use Gmail and Google Calendar at the same time with Split View to check your schedule before replying to an email to confirm a meeting time. Or, you can easily drag and drop pictures from Google Photos into an email without leaving Gmail.

Getting started

Admins: There is no admin control for this feature. 

End users: This feature will be available by default. To turn on Multitasking on your iPad, go to the Settings app > Home Screen & Dock > Multitasking and select “Allow Multiple Apps.” Visit the Apple Help Center to learn more.

To enter split view, when in Gmail and swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Dock. On the Dock, touch and hold the app you want to open and drag it to the left or right edge of your screen.

We also recommend you enable Keyboard Shortcuts for Gmail on your iPad for even more efficiency as you multitask.
