When I open a google app like 'Whatsapp' or other, its not possible to open a second app in a other window? The whatsapp app is closed and the other app is opening in the same window. Only one google window is open.

Thanks for this answer. But there is no solution for the moment! I hope there is one comming in on of the next updates?

Yes, it is only a feature request - as there is neither a "roadmap" tag nor any official statement I would not expect this to be implemented in the near future... a lot of users favor improving native app integration over improving Android support... but who knows... this is just my interpretation :)

By google you mean android, Whats app is not an google app... Facebook owns whats app...

Hit the square android button to switch between androd apps!

Also there is a native whatsapp client for Sailfish called Mitäkuuluu, available in Warehouse(openrepos)

Why this native whatsapp is not available in the jollastore?

Here's a statement from the developer: obviously he doesn't regard it stable enough yet (even though I never experienced problems with it) and it does not seem to fulfill all requirements of the Jolla Store yet.
