Meta has been updating WhatsApp’s Web version quite regularly with useful features like the ability to use WhatsApp on two phones and to have calls with up to 32 people on the web, among other things. And this time around it looks like you will get a much easier way of linking your WhatsApp account on the Web. Here’s how.

Use Your Phone Number To Login To WhatsApp Web

Based on a WABetaInfo report, it will soon become possible to log into your WhatsApp web account using your phone number. This has been spotted as per the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android version update. The feature dubbed “Link with phone number” will allow you to log into your WhatsApp account finally without scanning a QR Code.

Although still in beta testing for Android users, this feature allows for better connectivity even in previously impossible situations. One of my colleagues has successfully activated the new “link with phone number” feature on his WhatsApp account. It has enabled him to seamlessly log into his account without any hiccups. So, in order to help you easily use this feature once it goes live for you check out the detailed breakdown on how you can log into your WhatsApp account using your phone number below.

1. Go to WhatsApp Web, tap the “Link with phone number” option, and enter the 10-digit phone number.
