In the past year, WhatsApp has launched a feature that allows its users to seamlessly communicate across all of their devices while keeping their messages private and secure. The business has made it easier for its customers all around the world to log into the same account from different mobile devices.
WhatsApp now supports linking with up to four more devices at once, including web browsers, tablets, and desktop computers, which was one of the ‘most desired’ additions.
It also claims that linked phones establish a separate connection with the app, adding another layer of security to the end-to-end encryption of all messages, media, and phone calls. If the primary device has been idle for a while, all secondary ones will be logged out as well.
Users no longer need to log out of WhatsApp while switching between devices, allowing them to pick up right where they left off in their conversations. The same Business account allows several users to respond to consumers from their mobile devices.
Please be aware that the ability to use it on multiple phones is currently only available on Android smartphones.
According to a blog post by WhatsApp, “this update has begun rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.”
Here’s how to get into your WhatsApp account from more than one gadget:
- Start by downloading and setting up WhatsApp on a second mobile device, computer, or laptop.
- In the following window, click the “link a device” option.
- Go to your main phone.
- Navigate to the “link a device” option in Settings.
- You can now use the same WhatsApp account across two devices.
After a specific number of failed attempts to re-verify your account, the service may permanently prevent you from doing so. According to WhatsApp’s frequently asked questions page, users should avoid often swapping between devices and phone numbers. Only the phone number used to sign up for the account can be used to verify the account. If your phone has two SIM card slots, you’ll need to pick one to use for verification.
