It appears that WhatsApp plans to expand the multi-device feature. The messaging platform is expected to be able to allow you to use a single WhatsApp account across multiple devices. WaBetaInfo has discovered the exact update in the most recent Android Beta version of the application. The screenshots reveal that WhatsApp will label the feature that’s new as a “companion” device. Here’s how it works.
First, one must “register a device as a companion,” then WhatsApp allows users to connect to the same account on another phone using a QR-code with their primary phone. WhatsApp already offers the ability to connect multiple devices, however it will only allow users to access the app on desktops and not mobile phones.
The feature is in development. It is unclear about when the feature will be available to the current version of WhatsApp. According to the source, it could be to be added in the near future. There is no specific information on the date when this update will be available to iOS beta versions.
In the moment, WhatsApp only allows a user to connect their primary account to four devices. The introduction of the multi-device feature was an excellent option as it allows users to access WhatsApp even when their mobile is turned off. How do you make this function?
At first, it will be necessary for their smartphone to connect the WhatsApp account to other devices. After that, users can use the app with no phone. The first step is to start WhatsApp by tapping the three-dotted icon that is located in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. There is the option Linked Devices. It is as easy as tapping on it, and then tap once more in “Link a Device.”
Then, go to the WhatsApp web page on your PC and you will see an QR code that appears on screen. Simply scan it with your mobile phone. After that, you’ll be able to utilize the messaging app on your computer as well. It is possible to follow the identical procedure to use the app on different devices. The app gives you the the option of removing your account from various devices.
