WhatsApp Introduces Ability to Use Same Account on Multiple Phones

Posted April 25, 2023 at 2:33pm by iClarified
WhatsApp has introduced the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple phones.

A feature highly requested by users, now you 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 your primary device is inactive for a long period, we automatically log you out of all companion devices.

WhatsApp notes that linking phones as companion devices makes messaging easier. Now you 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.


The update has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.

Also rolling out over the coming weeks, is an alternative and more accessible way to link to companion devices. Users will be able to enter their phone number on WhatsApp Web to receive a one-time code, which can be used on your phone to enable device linking, rather than having to scan a QR code.

You can download WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store.
