WhatsApp multi-device feature has been out for quite a while now. The feature allows users to use WhatsApp on three devices simultaneously, but none of them can be a smartphone. However, that could change soon.
You’ll soon be able to use WhatsApp on two phones
According to a recent report by WABetaInfoWhatsApp is working on a new companion mode – a feature billed as Multi-Device 2.0 – recently spotted in the WhatsApp beta for Android version 220.127.116.11. With companion mode, you would be able to link a second mobile to your WhatsApp account. And you know what the best part is; you do not need an active internet connection on your primary phone to send messages with the linked phone.
WhatsApp’s companion mode will be similar to cross-device functionality
The feature is said to work similarly to WhatsApp for Web/Desktop. The chat would be copied to the secondary phone securely, and the process might take a while as it takes when using the web or desktop companion.
The feature was spotted in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android version 18.104.22.168. We don’t know if or when WhatsApp will release this feature. So, it’s finally good to see WhatsApp taking a step in the right direction. We don’t know if or when WhatsApp will release this feature. For now, we can only wait for WhatsApp to begin a wider beta test and then release the feature at some point in the future.
