– Recently after releasing a presentation sheet to introduce WhatsApp on your Android tablet, WhatsApp is officially rolling out the whatsapp companion mode for mobile phones on Android beta, to some beta testers !
This will give people the access to link their existing WhatsApp account to an Android tablet.
It was also announced that the companion mode mode might be released for mobile phones in the future, although an official release date has not been announced.
Lastly, WhatsApp is now testing the companion mode for mobile phones by enabling the feature for some beta testers !
As can be seen below, it is so easy to know that you can already link your existing WhatsApp account to a secondary mobile phone.
Simply view the options within the registration screen to see if there is a “Link device” option.
If this option shows up, this means you can finally use WhatsApp on an additional mobile phone !
As soon as you are done linking your WhatsApp account to a new mobile phone, your chat history will be synced across your linked devices.
It is important to note that, since this is a beta version, some features may still not be available, for instance, the ability to manage broadcast lists and stickers including the ability to view live locations.

Also another interesting feature is that you can link up to 4 devices at once so you may also link more than two mobile phones to your WhatsApp account.
In addition, your personal messages and calls remain end-to-end encrypted regardless of if you use WhatsApp from a linked mobile phone.
When someone sends you a message, it will be sent to all your devices so encryption is always preserved.
The companion mode of mobile phones is available for some beta testers that install the recent WhatsApp beta for Android.
It is available on the Play Store and is being rolled out to more users in the coming weeks
In case you can find the feature is still not available for you, you might wait for an upcoming new beta build and keep your version of WhatsApp up to date.
