WhatsApp Enhances Android Tablet Experience with Split-view Feature

WhatsApp’s split-view feature for Android tablets separates the screen into two sides, wherein the left side shows the chat view while the right side has the active conversation thread.

WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, recently announced an exciting new feature for Android tablet users: split-view. For years, this was a lacking attribute on WhatsApp; however, WABetaInfo reported that they are taking strides to improve user experience with their app and enable better support for Android tablets by adding this split view feature. With this change now available in the app’s beta version, we can expect even more convenience when using WhatsApp from your tablet device.

According to this latest report, adding a new feature will make tablet users’ lives much easier. Not only will they be able to take advantage of an improved user interface specifically tailored for larger screens, but they also have the option of multitasking — simultaneously displaying two different sections in the app. This should significantly enhance their experience with using the application.

WABetaInfo’s screenshot demonstrates that conversation threads and chat views are now separated into two distinct sides of the screen – with conversations taking place on the right and a chat view placed to its left. This is an advancement from prior versions where an entire tablet display was taken up by either one or the other.

Currently, this alteration is only available through WhatsApp, which also enables reporting for status updates and provides a mute option for notifications.

Recently, WhatsApp rolled out a new companion mode feature that allowed users to link their Android tablets with an existing account. Although this benefited many people who could now use the app without any workarounds, it wasn’t well optimized for big-screen devices. In response to this issue, they just released a split-view update which significantly improves user experience on larger screens.
