WhatsApp has finally introduced the ability to use two phones for one account. This feature comes straight out of beta as an extension to its Multi-Device support and can arguably be considered the most-requested one. Have a look at the details below.
Now Use WhatsApp on Multiple Phones!
WhatsApp’s usage of one account on multiple phones is valid for up to four additional phones, allowing you to use WhatsApp on five different phones; a primary device and four companion devices. This is similar to how you can add up to four additional devices like tablets, desktops, and WhatsApp’s Web version.
It would be easier to maintain the flow of conversations on each device and there won’t be a need for you to sign in or out every time you want to use this functionality. You can simply download WhatsApp on a secondary or tertiary device and sign up with your existing account by selecting the new “link to existing account” option.
