The “companion” mode will reassure WhatsApp users


We have known for a very long time that WhatsApp has been developing a feature, called “companion mode”, allowing the user to log into the same account on several smartphones, as well as on tablets. And the good news is that this feature is still relevant.

Indeed, according to the WABetaInfo site, always on the lookout for the latest WhatsApp news, the messaging service has even begun to deploy this new feature to some users of its beta version on Android. Thus, we can hope that we are getting closer to the launch.

Up to 4 smartphones for a WhatsApp account?

Otherwise, the beta of WhatsApp also allows us to have some information on this future novelty of the app. According to WABetaInfo, if you’re running the WhatsApp beta on Android, you can check to see if you have access to the new feature.

When logging into WhatsApp, a new option “Link device” will appear. Then, the connection to the WhatsApp account already used on another smartphone would be done through a QR code.

This feature is eagerly awaited by all WhatsApp users who own more than one smartphone, or who would like to use the app on a tablet. And the good news is that the messaging service could authorize up to 4 smartphones, for the same account.

Discussions always encrypted

Once connected, these smartphones would benefit from all the basic functionality of the messaging app, with synchronization of the chat history. However, as part of the beta tests, some functions such as stickers would still be missing. And communications will always be end-to-end encrypted, making them unreadable as they pass through Meta’s servers.

In recent years, WhatsApp has made the ability to use its messaging on multiple devices a priority. But it first rolled out its cross-device feature to computers, which now lets you use WhatsApp on a browser, even when your smartphone is turned off or disconnected.

WhatsApp continues to be full of new features

In any case, by finally allowing the use of the same account on several smartphones, WhatsApp should further strengthen itself compared to the competition. Lately, messaging has continued to improve.

Among the most recent innovations, there are the Communities, which allow you to create discussions organized by themes, like on Slack or Discord. WhatsApp is also aimed at more professional uses by allowing videoconference calls with 32 participants, and by allowing the sending of 2 GB files.
