Until relatively recently, WhatsApp did not officially work on tablets, although you were free to install the app on one with the APK. The support arrived last year, but the interface did not adapt to the larger screen of the tablets. now at last WhatsApp takes advantage of the large screen of tablets with a two-column view.
Thanks to new WhatsApp multi-device modeFinally, we can use WhatsApp at the same time on the mobile and on the tablet, but the experience on the tablet left a lot to be desired, because it is the same, but in a big way. In the latest WhatsApp beta, finally the interface is adapted to take advantage of the extra space more intelligently.
Two-column interface in WhatsApp
When we tested WhatsApp on a tablet with the new multi-device mode last year, we remarked that the technology worked very well, but it was a shame that the interface was the same as the mobile one, but bigger. This made the chats a bit hard to read and we kept needing to go back to the previous screen to change chats.
WhatsApp has been working on it and now it finally has the two-column, split-screen view. That is, when you enter a chat, you keep seeing the list of chatsso you can easily switch from one to the other, as well as see if you have new messages.
Basically, it’s the same as what WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop looks like today, so the interface is quite easy to use and also familiar. This split screen view is available whether we use WhatsApp with the tablet horizontally and verticallyas long as the screen is large enough.
According to WaBetaInfo, the novelty is available as of WhatsApp 220.127.116.11 beta, although it is hoped that it will reach everyone soon. If you already use WhatsApp on a tablet, you don’t need to wait any longer: download the APK of this version from APKMirror.
