Great news for WhatsApp fans! If you are the person who has already signed up for Whatsapp’s beta program will now be the lucky ones when you can install WhatsApp on your tablets. Before, it was necessary to download & install the APK file to enjoy the pleasure of communicating through one of the most widely used message apps.

For now, beta testers simply open the Google Play Store and you can be able to chat from your devices with all of your contacts. However, you should note that since WhatsApp[1] does not work like Telegram, so you cannot have the same account on two devices at the same time. If your WhatsApp account is being opened on your Android tablet, you cannot use it on your smartphone.

Those who were not a beta tester, you should not worry. If you still want to use WhatsApp on your tablet, don’t worry, you can still do so. In this post, we tell you how to download the app.

Use the tablet as an additional screen

You have already got WhatsApp on your phone but you also want to use it on your tablet,  the easiest solution out there, which works on both iPads as well as Android tablets is WhatsApp Web.

But, how can we get from using WhatsApp on the computer to using on the tablet? Although WhatsApp Web is released to work as a desktop client, it is a web client, so you can ráily run on the desktop version of your device’s browser. First, click on the link below:

There is only a caveat when the WhatsApp session is bound to the battery life of your device. If the battery runs out, WhatsApp will also disconnect. The web client is a mirror of what is on your tablet.

Use WhatsApp as a standalone app

If you are not satisfied with the WhatsApp Web workaround, here is another way to install WhatsApp on your Android tablet. When searching for the app in Google Play Store on your tablet, you will be prompted that your table isn’t compatible with this version.  Here’s what to do in this case:
