WhatsApp users are aware that one account can presently only be linked to one smartphone. This implies that if you use WhatsApp on one phone, you won't be able to use it on another using the same phone number.
For WhatsApp Web, one may use laptops or desktop computers. However, WhatsApp Web does not operate on mobile browsers or tablets, thus access to other devices is confined to PCs. This, however, might soon alter.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp's beta update (version 188.8.131.52) implies a new feature will be available shortly. According to the article, "WhatsApp is working on adding the option to link mobile devices in a future version of the software."
According to the source, this will be the second edition of multi-device compatibility, which was introduced last year. For example, WhatsApp Web's Multi-device compatibility is restricted to four devices, regardless of the primary smartphone to which the account is tied.
The new forthcoming functionality may appear in the settings under the section titled "Register Device as Companion." When a user attempts to access WhatsApp on a secondary mobile device, this message will appear.
It appears that this will also function by scanning a QR code, like WhatsApp online already does. In the future, users will be able to attach an Android tablet as a secondary device, according to the article.
For those who missed it, WhatsApp has announced that the Communities feature, which will aid in group organization, will be available shortly. It will also include replies to messages in group conversations, as well as the option to exchange files up to 2GB in size. It has already upped the group voice call limit to 32 persons.
