WhatsApp Multi -Device Support Starts Launched to All Users: How to Link

WhatsApp has started rolling out the much-awaited multi-device support for all users. With the latest functionality, both Android and iOS users can use their WhatsApp accounts on different devices simultaneously to send and receive messages on the app, even if their phones don’t have active Internet access. This feature has been in beta for some time. You can use up to four connected devices and one phone at a time. However, it should be noted that the linked device will be disconnected if the phone remains inactive for 14 days.

WhatsApp has updated the FAQ page with details on multi -device support features. WhatsApp will now allow users to connect their instant messaging accounts to up to four devices, including laptops or PCs. Users do not need to make sure their phone is connected to the Internet to access this function. However, WhatsApp will disconnect you from the paired device if you do not use your phone for more than 14 days. WhatsApp confirmed that it allows end -to -end encryption on chats that take place using connected devices. So neither WhatsApp nor third parties can read messages you send or receive on your connected PC or laptop.

How to link your WhatsApp account to a second device

To use the multi -device feature, users are required to update their WhatsApp to the latest version. Once done, you can follow these steps to use WhatsApp on multiple devices:

  1. Open Whatsapp on your Android smartphone and tap on the three -dot menu. Select Linked devices. WhatsApp iOS users can select a linked Device by tapping a button settings icon.
  2. Select Link devices.
  3. Unlock your phone with biometric authentication or enter a pin.
  4. Open or the WhatsApp Desktop app on your PC or laptop.
  5. Scan a QR code via your smartphone.

Once linked, WhatsApp can be accessed simultaneously on different devices to send and receive messages. It should be noted that some features are not supported on linked devices.

According to WhatsApp, live location viewing is not possible on paired devices. Creating and viewing a list of posts or sending messages with a link preview from WhatsApp Web cannot be done on a second device. Additionally, iPhone users cannot delete or clear chats on linked devices. Calling or sending messages to users with older versions of WhatsApp will also not be supported on linked devices.
