You can now use your WhatsApp account on multiple phones with a newly introduced feature from the social media platform. You should also know that the messaging app makes it very easy to link devices to your account.
WhatsApp Account on Multiple Phones
Starting today, WhatsApp users can now link their phones to their WhatsApp account, the team that is behind the app in a post on Tuesday said. A simple app update will add this highly requested feature from users and then simplify the process of linking, the social media platform said.
“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, we automatically log you out of all companion devices,” the blog post reads.
How the Feature Works
In order to link companion devices, users will get a one-time code to the primary phone number. WhatsApp called this very alternative approach to account linking “more accessible” for users in contrast to scanning a QR code, which is the former way to link accounts on the platform.
When Will the Roll out Start
The update has already started rolling out globally, and users can now expect to see the new feature on their app in the next couple of weeks, WhatsApp stated.
The change in question will benefit anyone who utilizes WhatsApp on multiple devices, the WhatsApp team stated, but it however highlighted that small businesses can have employees use their respective devices in order to communicate with customers under the very same WhatsApp Business account.
WhatsApp Multi-Device Features
WhatsApp implemented multi-device features in the previous year that let people connect up to four additional non-phone devices just to one WhatsApp account for seamless communication. And with the move made by the platform today, it now brings phones into the mix.
