Keep reading to find out more about this game-changing development in the WhatsApp world.
What is Dual Panel View?
Dual Panel View is a new feature that WhatsApp for tablets will start to rollout starting today. The way it works is by splitting the screen in two, with the main chat window on the left and a list of messages, photos, and videos on the right. You can swipe between them either with two fingers or using an edge finger gesture.
This mode is great for groupschat and especially useful when you have a lot of messages and don’t want to scroll through them all. It also means you can see more of what your friends are up to without having to switch back and forth between threads.
