WhatsApp beta is testing a major design change for its Android app and has added the much requested feature for users. The new feature allows users to synchronize their accounts on a second smartphone. This was confirmed by WABetaInfo and is being distributed to all WhatsApp testers on Android.
After Much Anticipation, WhatsApp Rolls Out Second Smartphone Linking Feature
To use this feature, users need to follow a few simple steps. First, install the latest beta version of WhatsApp on your secondary smartphone. Next, open the app and select the “link a device” option from the top menu. Then, on your main smartphone, go to settings > linked devices and point the primary smartphone camera at the secondary QR Code. Wait for synchronization, and chat history, calls, and other data will automatically sync between the two smartphones. Even when the main one has no internet connection.
However, each device must work independently, and some features still do not work as expected. Such as the ability to manage broadcast lists or post a Status from the secondary device. The feature is currently only available to WhatsApp beta users on Android, but it will soon be available on iOS, and the messenger intends to release the synchronization of the same account with up to four smartphones.
It is important to note that WhatsApp must ensure the presence of encryption for all messages and calls in all cases. This is to protect user privacy and ensure that their data is secure.
In conclusion, WhatsApp is always looking for ways to improve user experience by adding new features and updates. The new feature to synchronize accounts on a second smartphone is a significant step forward. And will be appreciated by users who want to access their WhatsApp account on multiple devices. So, we are waiting for its debut in a stable version.
