WhatsApp Latest Update: The instant messaging service WhatsApp has released a new feature that will let its beta testers link their accounts to a different phone and an Android tablet. Users of WhatsApp have access to all of WhatsApp’s features, including message encryption, on up to four Android devices when they link those devices to their main account.
The most current WhatsApp beta for Android, version 126.96.36.199, now includes buddy mode, which enables users to link a second phone to their primary account.
According to the source, beta users of the service may now enable Companion mode by selecting “Link a device” from the drop-down menu located under the settings menu on the registration screen.
Users of WhatsApp may connect up to four Android phones to their main account, giving them access to all of WhatsApp’s standard features including message encryption.
According to GSM Arena, beta users of the service may enable Companion mode by choosing “Link a device” from the dropdown menu under the settings menu on the registration page.
Currently, the functionality is only available to a limited number of beta users; a larger deployment will take more time.
