WhatsApp users are aware that one profile can only be connected to one smartphone at this time. This means that if you use WhatsApp on one phone, you won’t be able to use it on another phone with the same number. For the Web version, users can use laptops or desktop computers. However, WA Web does not function on mobile devices or tablets, thus access is confined to computers. This, however, may soon change.
WhatsApp’s beta update (version 188.8.131.52) implies a new feature is coming shortly, according to WABetaInfo.
Yes, you will be able to link WhatsApp through one main device to additional mobile devices shortly. Keep in mind that the function is currently in beta, so not everyone will see it.
WhatsApp’s New Feature Will Roll Out Soon
According to the source, this will be the second iteration of multi-device functionality, which was first introduced last year. For example, WA Web’s Multi-device compatibility is restricted to four devices, regardless of the account’s primary smartphone.
The new forthcoming functionality might be found under the “Register Device as Companion” section of the settings. When a user attempts to access WhatsApp on a second mobile device, this message will appear. It appears that, like WhatsApp online, this will also operate by scanning a QR code. In the future, users will be able to link an Android tablet as a secondary device, according to the article.
For all those who missed it, WA has announced that the Communities feature, which will help groups organize themselves better, will be released soon. It will also allow users to react to messages in group conversations and exchange files up to 2GB in size. It has already raised the group voice call limit to 32 persons.
