WhatsApp It is still on the podium as one of the most popular instant messaging applications. Over the last few months we have seen different features and functions for both the application of Android as for browser version WhatsApp Web and, of course, the app for computers.
Among these latest features, a new mode has come to light with which the application would allow users to have the same number linked to two different devices. The name of the feature would be WhatsApp Companion Mode which would be translated as ‘Companion Mode’ and, to be honest, its name indicates its functionality quite well.
The feature was left up in the air until now. Today and thanks to WaBetaInfo, it has been revealed that WhatsApp has this mode ready with which you can use your WhatsApp on two mobiles at the same time. Yes, this feature has been requested by users for several years now and it will finally be a reality for everyone.
As it has been seen, to be able to access the feature, the first and most necessary thing will be the installation of the latest beta version of whatsapp app. This time the feature is in the application for Android mobile phones so, in case you have an iPhone with iOSyou will not be able to access the functionality.
WhatsApp Companion Mode: so you can use your WhatsApp on two phones at the same time
Having the latest version now what you will have to do is go to the WhatsApp settings on the main device. Yes, you must have both devices with the beta version of WhatsApp installed and your WhatsApp account already configured on one of them in order to start using this feature that is not yet in the stable application.
In the configuration section, the menu that interests us is that of the linked devices since it will be where a new device can be linked. It will be in this section where the application will ask you to scan the QR code of the other device. After scanning the QR code, the application will be synchronized and the second device will be linked.
WhatsApp has not given a specific timeline for when iOS users can expect this feature to be available. For now, we will have to wait to see the feature in the stable version, although we hope that its proper functioning will make WhatsApp hurry up.
