WhatsApp, owned by Meta, is one of the most widely used instant messaging applications in the world. The app has always been bringing new features and updates at regular intervals to improve users’ chatting experience. WhatsApp now allows users to send text messages, video messages and media files to contacts in just minutes. Users can even make voice/video calls and make UPI payments online through the app.
Currently, the app allows users to open a WhatsApp account in a smartphone and three other devices i.e. desktops and laptops. However, users cannot open the same account on multiple smartphones. The inability to use WhatsApp on multiple smartphones has been a pain for users.
Now, reports suggest WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to link another smartphone to their account.
A new WhatsApp feature is being developed which will allow users to add a second smartphone as a companion device and also use WhatsApp from that device.
According to reports, the app is working on a feature that syncs your chat history across mobile devices in the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android v188.8.131.52. This little feature hinted that support for companion devices should eventually come to the platform.
Currently, you can use WhatsApp on up to 4 devices including a smartphone while Telegram allows its users to use multiple smartphones simultaneously.
