After releasing a new multi-device update on WhatsApp Beta for Android and iOS that brings bug fixes and new improvements to your experience when using WhatsApp Web/Desktop, WhatsApp is now working on other significant improvements . According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on bringing multi-device support to the phone, which will allow you to use the same account on different phones.
The update will bring a new WhatsApp section called “Register Device as Companion” with a description stating that the feature will allow you to use WhatsApp on any other device. In addition, you may need to scan a QR code with your primary WhatsApp device. WABetaInfo says the app will let you link an Android tablet as a secondary device in the future.
“WhatsApp is rolling out a new update through the Google Play beta program, bringing the version up to 18.104.22.168.
What’s new in this update? WhatsApp is working on the ability to link new mobile devices to your WhatsApp account for future updates.
The upcoming update will automatically sync recent messages across companion devices and will be end-to-end encrypted. The Multi-Device Link feature will also eliminate the need for a SIM card to use your WhatsApp account on another phone or tablet.
The Meta-owned messaging platform already allows users to log in on multiple devices through the ‘Linked Devices feature’, which was launched in November 2021.

Support of 32 people will be available on voice call only.
