Major WhatsApp Updates Show Up on Android Beta: Linked Devices, Advanced Search”

Dark mode was one of WhatsApp's most awaited features, and after months of tests it finally rolled out earlier this year. The Linked Accounts feature will essentially allow you to use one WhatsApp account and link it with multiple devices, hence further increasing the scope of usage. There will also apparently be a "Link a New Device" option - which is a odd way to do it rather than just logging onto the device to be linked. WhatsApp Web is there but for this too your phone needs to be close to the laptop or PC.

According to WABetaInfo this is about to change, with Facebook building in a new UI which allows users to link multiple devices (up to 4) and use them at the same time.

WhatsApp has been spotted several times to be working on the multi-device support feature. At present, this feature is being tested with support for up to four devices. Interestingly, the "Linked Devices" tab appears to replace the "WhatsApp Web" tab that is presently available on WhatsApp's stable build, hence stating that WhatsApp is now ready to link one account to more devices beyond the Web app functionality.

WhatsApp may be used by a lot of people, over two billion at last count, but that does nowhere near make it the best messaging app around.

The detailed Linked Devices interface now shows a list of all devices that are linked to your account.

WABetaInfo notes that users will be able to link devices using a code delivered either via SMS or WhatsApp Chat. Another option is to log out from linked devices which can also be done under Linked Devices. But the latest update shows that the feature is nearly ready.
