It’s not something new that same WhatsApp account works on different devices, you could easily share access of your own account through your phone and use it on WhatsApp Web or the official app made for computers and have easily your WhatsApp on multiple devices.
WhatsApp on multiple devices, no need to install additional app
So far, we have not been allowed to use WhatsApp simultaneously between mobile devices. There are third apps that let you use the same account on many phones at once, but this also raised security issues. The feature that Telegram has offered for years is finally here on WhatsApp. Telegram has been making your account working on the computer and various mobile devices.
WhatsApp supports multi device usage and currently you can use your account on up to 4 devices at the same time. You can access your account from many devices, but a lot of people aren’t aware this feature exists. Here’s how you can link your device to another Android smartphone / tablet.
This screen appears when you first install WhatsApp and asks for your phone number; however, if you enter the number on your backup device, WhatsApp logs you out of your main smartphone. To link the phone, click on the three dots in the top right corner.
In this drop down menu, there was only the “Help” option. Tap on the first option, “Link a new device“. A QR code will appear on your backup phone, take your main phone and scan the QR code that appears on your backup phone.
WhatsApp has provided extremely basic instructions as well. Go to WhatsApp settings on your main device, tap Linked devices, scan the QR code that appears on your secondary device.
Now you are all set! You can enjoy using WhatsApp on your multiple mobile devices. WhatsApp could have kept the device pairing menu in a more prominent section, but this is how WhatsApp is currently designed.
