WhatsApp side-by-side option can be managed within the in-app settings. With the option in the settings, users can disable the side-by-side view by toggling the option available within WhatsApp Settings under Chat Settings.
Side-by-side view splits the screen, can result in a smaller area for each conversation, especially on devices with smaller screens.
In addition, some users would like to have the traditional single-window view and may find the side-by-side view inconvenient. WhatsApp is now rolling out a toggle to disable the side-by-side view.
WhatsApp is enabling the feature for Android tablet users for an upcoming update.
