Hello friends! Some WhatsApp news arrives with prior notice. While one of the most important new features of WhatsApp, has suddenly arrived: being able to use your same WhatsApp account on two phones at the same time, or on a phone and a tablet. WhatsApp’s multi-device mode takes a new leap. Allowing us to use it to configure our WhatsApp account in its official application. Instead of having to do it on WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop, as until now. The new feature is available to everyone through WhatsApp Beta and is considered beta. In this post, we’ll show you how to use the new WhatsApp multi-device mode.

Use WhatsApp on two Android phones at the same time

WhatsApp debuted the new multi-device mode more than a year ago now. Is a way to use your WhatsApp account without having your main phone always connected to the Internet. That is, these devices work independently. Instead of synchronizing from the phone, as until then. The big downside of this new multi-device mode is that you could not use it to have your WhatsApp account on two phones, or tablets.

Thanks to this new feature, you can use your WhatsApp account on multiple Android phones or tablets

Instead, if you wanted to use WhatsApp on more than one phone or a phone and a Tablet. You needed to resort to tricks, using WhatsApp Web on them. But the result is simply not as smooth as using the official app. Now, WhatsApp finally lets us use its app in companion mode. That is, just as WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop works. This opens the door to having your WhatsApp account on up to four Android phones or tablets at once.

Use the new mode on your Tablet

In the case of tablets, you can now download WhatsApp for your tablet directly from Google Play, without having to install the application from the APK. As we already told you, WhatsApp on a tablet opens directly in companion mode, showing the QR code that you must scan from WhatsApp on your main phone to start using the app. It’s the same menu as always: Linked devices > Link a device.

For your phone, you must first download the beta version of Whatsapp on your second phone. You can download it from a reliable source such as APK Mirror.

Then open WhatsApp on the second phone after installing the app. What usually appears to you is the menu to register a new account with the phone number. But you can switch to the linked mode.

Conclusion

WhatsApp’s synced mode has worked frankly well, despite still being a beta version. The only nitpick is that the maximum device limit is still four devices in total. Thanks for reading us. Bye!
