New Update

WhatsApp improves their multi-device feature; enables users to link their phone up to four additional devices.

WhatsApp introduced the ability for users globally to message across all their devices in 2022, while maintaining the same level of privacy and security.

The platform is improving their multi-device offering further by introducing the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple phones. 

The users can link their phone as one of up to four additional devices, the same as when you link with WhatsApp on web browsers, tablets and desktops. Each linked phone connects to WhatsApp independently, ensuring that your personal messages, media, and calls are end-to-end encrypted, and if your primary device is inactive for a long period, WhatsApp automatically log you out of all companion devices.

Linking phones as companion devices makes messaging easier. Now you can switch between phones without signing out and pick up your chats where you left off. Or if you’re a small business owner, additional employees are now able to respond to customers directly from their phones under the same WhatsApp Business account.

This update has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Also, rolling out over the coming weeks, the platform is introducing an alternative and more accessible way to link to companion devices. Now you can enter your phone number on WhatsApp Web to receive a one-time code, which you can use on your phone to enable device linking, rather than having to scan a QR code.
