According to a , WhatsApp appears to be working on a feature that would allow users to chat on multiple phones, or on one phone and one tablet, using the same account Screen found in a beta version of the app from the site WABetaInfo. The screen provides instructions for registering the device you’re using as a ‘companion’ by scanning a code with your main phone – although there doesn’t seem to be an actual code to scan at this time.
A screen found in a previous beta showed that devices may get the ability to sync recent messages even though they are end-to-end encrypted. This screen, combined with the Register Device as Companion screen directing users on how to use WhatsApp on another device, is compelling evidence that this feature is a work in progress.
Both screens were found in the Android version of the app, meaning the feature supports chatting on a secondary phone or tablet. At the moment, it’s unclear if the feature will also come to iOS when and when it launches, although there’s precedent that points to it. WhatsApp already technically supports using your account on multiple devices the Linked Devices feature., which currently only supports the use of computers as secondary devices. The feature is available for both iOS and Android.
Whatsapp launched Linked Devices as a public beta in November 2021and has has since improved (although it still some unsupported features, depending on what your main device is). But while Linked Devices is handy for desktop users, it doesn’t do much for those with secondary smartphones or tablets. Meta, WhatsApp’s parent company, did not immediately respond The edge‘s request for more details on his plans to expand the connected devices feature to support mobile devices as well.
