For years, many of us have wanted to use WhatsApp from two different smartphones. This wasn’t possible until now, as the instant-messaging app is introducing the feature in beta form along with the new 126.96.36.199 beta update, according to Android Police.
As soon as you install the new update, you can simply tap on the three-dot menu in the top right corner of your display and select the new ‘Link a device’ option. This will allow you to connect another device to your same WhatsApp account after you go through that annoying QR code test. Afterward, you’ll easily be able to access your WhatsApp account from two separate smartphones.
Are you ready for the new ‘Companion mode’?
The new feature in question is called ‘Companion mode,’ and surely there’s no wonder why they have chosen that name.
It’s also possible that you install the new 188.8.131.52 update, but you don’t see the new feature in your WhatsApp app. There’s no need to panic! Such a situation doesn’t mean that you’ve done something wrong. All you have to do is wait for the next update to get the problem fixed.
WABEtaInfo speaks about the new update of WhatsApp in a more detailed way, and you can feel free to check out their article.
Meta has been quite busy lately when it comes to updating WhatsApp, and there’s no reason to believe that the company won’t continue in a similar way for plenty of time from now on.
We can realistically hope that the stable version of the new 184.108.40.206 update will arrive soon enough. All we need to do is to keep our smartphones connected to our WiFi networks and try to be patient. If not, we can also manually check for the new update from time to time. We recommend doing it weekly.
