WhatsApp to let users connect to 2 Android devices with same account

 

SAN FRANCISCO: Meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp is reportedly testing a new feature that will allow users to add their current account to secondary devices such as Android tablets.

This feature is currently only available to WhatsApp beta testers.

According to the Android Authority, this new feature will allow users to link their WhatsApp accounts from their smartphones to the platform’s Android tablet app. This means you don’t have to create another WhatsApp account for her on your secondary Android device.

Once users have access to the updated WhatsApp app on their Android tablet, they will be asked to scan the QR code on the tablet app with their smartphone app.

According to reports, once the linking process is complete, the messaging platform will transfer the user’s chat to the tablet app, allowing the user to continue the conversation from the Android tablet’s phone app.

Last month, WhatsApp announced that it would be launching a new “Message Yourself” feature in the coming weeks.

Sending notes, reminders and updates is a one-on-one chat with yourself, the company said in a statement.

WhatsApp allows users to send themselves notes, reminders, shopping lists, etc. to manage their to-do list.
