whatsapp multi device beta

WhatsApp multi-device support is finally, rolling out. This means you can now use WhatsApp on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or other non-phone devices even when your phone’s battery is dead.

How to join or leave the WhatsApp multi-device beta

When you join the multi-device beta, you can use WhatsApp on up to four linked companion devices – desktop, laptop, or any other non-phone device. Each of these devices will connect to your WhatsApp account independently, without the need to keep your smartphone connected.
