Whatsapp. The famous instant messaging app is evolving with many new features to make the life of its users easier. The long-awaited multi-device mode is finally available for everyone for PC, Mac and tablet.
Launched in beta in late September 2021, WhatsApp’s multi-device login feature has finally rolled out officially to the app’s more than two billion active users. Now, up to five devices can be linked to a single WhatsApp account. Convenient to use instant messaging not only on a smartphone but also on a computer or tablet (read our practical sheet).
And the operation is really simple. As of now, to enjoy WhatsApp on a device other than a smartphone, you have to have the phone with which the account is linked and keep it connected to the internet. With the multi-device option, that is no longer the case. This function makes it possible to connect up to four additional devices with the same account without being required to maintain a link with the mobile. So it is possible to exchange messages or make calls even if the smartphone is not connected to the internet or is simply switched off. Please note: Only the desktop version of WhatsApp or computers using the WhatsApp Web Online service are concerned. On tablets, WhatsApp Web must be accessed from a browser, making sure to enable the display of the web page in the “computer version”.
How to use WhatsApp on multiple devices?
To be able to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices, you must first associate them with the account created on your smartphone. A simple and quick process.
To take advantage of this new function, you must first update the WhatsApp application on your smartphone to ensure that you have the latest version (available from mod version (2.2210.10)).
