Meta-owned messaging application WhatApp has announced the most awaited update today.
Now, WhatsApp can be connected to four more additional devices.
WhatsApp has introduced the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple phones.
Users can link your 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 the primary device is inactive for a long period, we automatically log you out of all companion devices.
Now user 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.
Now user can enter 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.
We look forward to introducing this feature to more companion devices in the future.
