Signal has released its 3.0 update, which finally included support for iPad. The long-awaited update released earlier this week and is now available on the App Store. The private and secure messaging app has its own designated UI, custom to iPad and will now allow users to send and receive messages on either iPad or iPhone devices.
Users will simply need to ensure their iPad is synced to their account iCloud account. Once completed, Signal should correctly sync the data between the iPad and iPhone correctly.
Along with iPad support, the 3.0 update brings some quality of life improvements to users. The ability to forwarding messages between threads is a new feature that has been included. The new iPad UI supports a vertical layout, plus a horizontal layout when your device is in landscape mode.
Additionally, Signal users are now able to edit videos using a trimming tool to shorten clips into highlights before sending them. Tapping on a contact’s avatar will allow you to quickly call or message them, making it easier to get in touch with anyone on your contact list.
Signal also made use of volunteer translators to help implement new languages, which include support for Bangla, Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
Signal can be downloaded for free on the App Store.
