WhatsApp Latest Update: Companion mode feature to allow using one account on up to 4 devices

WhatsApp users will soon be able to use their accounts on multiple devices. Those who use WhatsApp are aware that, unlike Telegram, WhatsApp doesn’t allow operating a single account on multiple mobile devices. As of now, a user can operate the account on a smartphone and on a laptop/desktop simultaneously. However, users are not allowed to operate WhatsApp simultaneously on two mobile devices – like two different smartphones or one smartphone and one tablet or two tablets at once.

However, now WhatsApp is reportedly working on a feature that would bring relief to many users for whom WhatsApp is a go-to messaging platform. There are over two billion active WhatsApp users and sometimes they want to use their account on two mobile devices. According to the WABetaInfo site that tracks all WhatsApp-related developments, the instant messaging platform can soon be used on two mobile devices, i.e. a smartphone and a tablet.

According to the report, even if your primary mobile device is an iPhone, you can still link your WhatsApp account to an Android tablet.
