In May of the previous year, we learned that WhatsApp was hard at work developing a Companion mode. This mode will enable users to link their account to additional devices, such as a tablet. A select group of beta testers had access to the functionality while it was in its testing phase. Now, WhatsApp is at long last releasing the Companion mode for Android to all of the beta testers who have been using it. You’ll have the capability to link an existing WhatsApp account to an additional mobile phone whenever this feature is available to you.
This feature, as described by WABetaInfo, is an expansion of the support for multiple devices. Users will be able to link their existing WhatsApp account to another mobile phone because it has been designed to facilitate this. Users are finally able to access their chats on a secondary mobile phone after linking an existing WhatsApp account to the device. Prior to this step, users were required to have an active Internet connection on the primary phone in order to view their talks on the secondary device.
Android Beta Testers Get WhatsApp Companion Mode
If you are interested in giving it a go, all you have to do is visit the Google Play store, download the most recent version of WhatsApp beta, and then select “Connect a device” when you get to the registration screen. To link the two devices, you will need to navigate to the Settings menu on your primary smartphone, select Connected Devices, and then take a picture of the QR code displayed on your secondary device.
Alternately, WhatsApp is now working on a new audio chat option that will be available for groups, in addition to making some graphical adjustments to the app’s attachment menu. Also, WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow users to lock individual chats in order to increase their level of privacy. So, WhatsApp will be introducing a significant number of brand-new features in the coming weeks and months.
