Android Splitscreen Background Playback
While this works partly right now, currently in when using the application in splitscreen, upon interacting with another window, the beam stream will be paused.
This is inconsistent with for example, Youtube, as it continues to play the video and the user can continue using the other window without interruption to the video

With Android 7.1, it is possible to watch Beam Streams via Chrome in splitscreen (but not on the Beam app yet).
