WhatsApp Might Soon Expand the Multi-device Sign-in Feature To Secondary Phones and Tablets

WhatsApp now has a Windows 11 native app - here's how to download it.

WhatsApp has long supported multi-device sign-in, at least when it comes to desktop computers. You can use the messenger on your laptop or computer without having to keep your phone connected to the internet. People with Android tablets or secondary cellphones, on the other hand, were left out of the party’ as the feature was only available on desktop computers. This could change soon, as early indications suggest that the messenger is working on enabling companion Android devices.

WABetaInfo went through the code and found a page in the current WhatsApp Beta for Android, version It appears to allow you to register an Android device as a secondary companion for your primary phone running WhatsApp.

The new WhatsApp section is called “Register Device as Companion,” with an explanation noting that the capability allows you to use WhatsApp on another device. The view appears to be in beta; as instructions at the bottom state that you must scan a QR code with your primary WhatsApp mobile to see what’s displayed here.
