WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging platform, is reportedly working on a split view feature for its tablet version.

The split view mode is expected to provide a better user experience, making it easier for users to manage and organize chats.

The split view feature is currently limited to WhatsApp Android beta users, but it may be rolled out publicly in the future. The split view allows users to easily switch between conversations without losing track of their ongoing conversations. Furthermore, the split view makes it easier to manage and organise chats because it allows users to quickly scroll through a list of conversations to find the one they need without leaving the current one.
