For a little while, WhatsApp is developing a feature called “companion mode”, allowing users to log into the same account from multiple smartphones. And good news, the messaging service has started to deploy its new mode to some users of its beta version on Android. We therefore imagine that the global deployment is coming soon.
If you are using the beta version of WhatsApp on android, you can check if you have access to this new feature when logging in. A new “Link device” option should appear on your smartphone. If so, click on it to generate a QR code that you can scan with a second device.
The beta version of the application also allows us to have some information on this companion mode. It would seem that from now on, it is possible to connect four devices, including two smartphones, to the same account WhatsApp. This new feature of course allows you to synchronize your conversations on each of your devices. As a reminder, it was already possible to link your Whatsapp account to a computer via an internet browser.
