So you can use WhatsApp on a tablet: Install the popular messaging application on any tablet and use it the same as on your mobile.
WhatsApp is the quintessential instant messenger app, with over 1 billion users worldwide, and among those who are probably you, who are reading this.
Obviously it is not perfect and in this time it has come out tough competition, like Telegram. One of the most desired features that WhatsApp users expect is the possibility of use the app for various devices at the same time without depending on the smartphone, to be able to carry it on several or mobile phones, for example, on our tablet.
Use WhatsApp on tablets through WhatsApp Web
If you tried to install WhatsApp on any tablet, either Android or iOS, you will have verified that in the corresponding application stores they indicate that it is not compatible with the device, however there are a couple of ways to use it on tablets
As we see in the video above, the first way is to take advantage of the WhatsApp Web interface, exactly as we do on the computer from a compatible browser, such as Chrome or Edge.
We enter web.whatsapp.com and, in case the official WhatsApp website appears, simply click on the Chrome options to see how the computer will appear and the login screen will appear. scan the QR code with the WhatsApp application on the smartphone and that’s it.
The advantage of this method is that we can continue to use our WhatsApp on the mobile, but at specific moments use the web from the tablet. The downside is that always we depend on the mobileThat is, if our smartphone does not have an Internet connection, we cannot use WhatsApp on the tablet.
How to install WhatsApp on the tablet
The second method is simple: install WhatsApp on the tablet, exactly the same as on mobile, but with one difference: we have to download the APK file directly from the official WhatsApp page:
We download, we install the APK on the Android tablet and we follow the steps of the application. The most delicate is the moment of verifying our phone number, at that time we must have the SIM in a mobile so that they can send us the SMS or call us by phone. Once that is done, we simply enter the security code and that’s it.
The advantage of this method is that WhatsApp will be installed forever on the tablet and we do not depend on the mobile at any time. In addition, it is not necessary that our tablet have an internal SIM, we just need internet connection (for Wifi, for example).
The disadvantage is clear: if you use this method with your personal number, you will not be able to use WhatsApp on your mobile, since, as we said at the beginning, the messaging application does not allow you to have an account on multiple devices at the same time.
