      If you want to know about the latest update of Galaxy S3 Mini then the new Jellybean 4.1.2 DXALL7 Firmware rolls out the bug fixes and users troubling in playing games are fixed.
      The multi view feature is new feature available in Jellybean 4.2 and since the update is 4.1.2, you wont get multi-view window feature in it. Wait for the custom ROM that brings this popular feature for Galaxy S3 Mini.
