WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new update that will allow it to finally offer a feature that has been available on Telegram for years.

A new update is expected to bring multi-device support to phones. WhatsApp has had multi-device support for some time now but the app allowed users to log in only on desktops, leaving users who wished to use the same account on different mobiles empty handed.

According to a WaBetaInfo report, WhatsApp is working on a new update that will change this. WhatsApp is working on bringing multi-device support to phones, which will enable you to use the same account on different phones.

WhatsApp will reportedly name the new feature as a companion device, asking users to “register the device as companion”. This will allow you to use the same account on a different phone by scanning a QR code using your primary phone.

The screen shows instructions to the users on how to connect a secondary device to their account.

Open WhatsApp on your phone.

Tap menu or settings and select Linked Devices.

Point your phone to this screen and scan the code.

 

This feature will also allow you to install the app on your Android tablet and use your WhatsApp account from the tablet as a secondary device. At the moment, it’s not clear when the feature will be released to users.

Earlier this month, a report had revealed that WhatsApp is working on a subscription plan for WhatsApp Business users that will allow them to connect their WhatsApp account with up to 10 devices.
