WhatsApp gets multi-device support for Android tablets

WhatsApp has recently been introducing a good number of new features to its platform. Now it looks like the platform is developing a new feature that lets you link an Android tablet to an existing account.

This was spotted on the Google Play Beta Program version of the application.

According to WABetaInfo, this feature is another version of Companion Mode for multi-devices that WhatsApp is developing.

The new feature will function similarly to how we link our WhatsApp account on a PC. With an upcoming update, users can use the same account on up to four devices, including a tablet.

How to Link your Android Tablet to Your WhatsApp Account

WhatsApp beta adds multi device support for Android tablets

To initiate the process, you will have to navigate to WhatsApp Settings > Linked Devices and scan the QR code to sync WhatsApp conversations with an Android tablet.

Initially, you needed Internet access to begin the linking process, but after that, you can even turn off the Internet on the phone and use WhatsApp on the tablet.

An interesting point is that you can link an iPhone WhatsApp account to an Android tablet using the companion mode. Currently, this feature is only available for a few beta testers. So, we’ll have to wait for the wider rollout.
