How to use your WhatsApp Account in two phones [Official/Guide]
WhatsApp needs no introduction. The application has improved a lot in recent years and got so many advanced features. Now the company is bringing a useful feature for the app that will allow you to use the same WhatsApp account on two different phones.
Nowadays, it is common that you are using two phones and instead of two, you want to have the same WhatsApp account open on both. But after login into your WhatsApp account on one phone, when you try to log in with the same number on another phone, the account gets automatically deactivated from the first phone.
Earlier it was not officially possible to use the same WhatsApp account on 2 different smartphones but now it is. You can use your WhatsApp account on two phones through the Linked Devices feature. This feature was earlier available for WhatsApp web customers but now it is making its way to WhatsApp for Android phones as well.
The Linked Devices feature allows you to access WhatsApp using WhatsApp Web on multiple devices through a browser without your phone being connected to the Internet. Since WhatsApp Web doesn’t require you to enter a number, it’s fairly easy to access it on two devices. But when it comes to phones it is necessary to enter the phone number during setup.
Here’s how to use your WhatsApp Account on two smartphones:
First of all, make sure that you have installed the latest version of WhatsApp on both of your phones. Now with the first account logged in, open WhatsApp on the second device and start the setup by choosing a language and agreeing to the terms.
Your second device will ask for your “phone number”, tap on the “more” option (three-dot menu) and select “Link a device”. It will show a “QR code” to link to the other phone.
Now, open WhatsApp on your first phone and go to “Menu” followed by “Linked Devices” and “Link a device” options, and finally, scan the QR code. After scanning the QR, WhatsApp on the second device will start syncing your account with the first phone.
