Google’s official Docs, Sheets and Slides apps for iOS finally support Split View multitasking on iPad, giving users the ability to compose reports and edit their spreadsheets while simultaneously using a second app.

Google is always keen to take advantage of new features added to iOS, but sometimes it takes the company a little while to update all its apps. Chrome has supported Split View since back in October, and now Docs, Sheets and Slides are also compatible.

Simply install the latest versions of these apps and you’ll have the ability to use them alongside other iPad apps. And that’s not all you can do now; Docs also allows you to insert page breaks and images into your documents.

All three apps have also received bug fixes and performance improvements, which should mean they are now snappier and more stable. You can download them from the App Store by following the links below.
