WhatsApp has begun to roll out a test version for Android customers that allows them to connect a second smartphone to their accounts. The function is now restricted to a small group of beta testers, but it may be made accessible to a larger user base in the coming weeks.

Although it claims to sync your communication across several devices, some functionalities are still unavailable in companion mode. Furthermore, the Meta-owned platform is exploring the ability to connect WhatsApp on Android tablets as well as the Do Not Disturb function on smartphones.

The latest WhatsApp for android beta release features

According to WhatsApp beta tracker WABetaInfo, the latest WhatsApp for Android beta v2.22.24.18 release features smartphone buddy mode. This functionality is supposed to enable users to connect their existing gadgets to another smartphone at the same time.

However, this version does not include the ability to monitor live locations or adjust broadcast lists/stickers. According to another source, the WhatsApp for Android beta release v2.22.24.18 allows users to attach Android tablets to an existing WhatsApp account. This option is supposed to be available as 'Linked devices beta' under the 'Link a device' menu. These features' ultimate release date is currently unclear.

WhatsApp is working on the Do Not Disturb API

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is claimed to be working on making the app compatible with the Do Not Disturb API. According to reports, this capability was discovered in the WhatsApp beta for Android v2.22.24.17. Furthermore, some users may be able to obtain this functionality by installing the v2.22.24.15 beta version.

If you miss a call because of the do not disturb mode, this function would purportedly mark it as "Silenced by Do Not Disturb" if you miss it. A limited number of beta testers are presently allowed to access this beta update.
