WhatsApp on Multiple Phones: How to Enable Same WhatsApp Account on 4 Devices

Here's how to use WhatsApp on multiple numbers using the same number!

  • WhatsApp on multiple phones is available now.
  • You can now use the same WhatsApp account on different phones.
  • Here’s how to do it.


WhatsApp is finally rolling out the multi-device support globally in WhatsApp stable. It has been available on WhatsApp beta for some months and is finally here.

Before this, we could only use WhatsApp on a single device. That has been a problem for users with two phones or a phone and a tablet. I use multiple phones, and I usually miss many WhatsApp notifications and chats because I use two different phones, and I’m mostly on my secondary phone, as it’s my work device. This feature will let me simultaneously use WhatsApp on two different phones, much like how I have been using Telegram. I’m sure this new feature will be useful for many users like me.

WhatsApp announced this feature in a blog post, and the Head of WhatsApp at Meta had this to say about the launch of the feature:

WhatsApp had this to say about the feature’s launch, “Today, we’re improving our multi-device offering further by introducing the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple phones.”

WhatsApp multi-device linking is an extension to WhatsApp Web and works more or less like the older WhatsApp Web feature. In this article, let us check how WhatsApp on multiple devices work and how to link your other phone.

It is an extension of the multi-device feature WhatsApp already have, as it extends the same functionality of using WhatsApp on different devices to Android and iOS devices. Last year, WhatsApp extended the WhatsApp Web feature to make it a Multi-device feature, which made it possible for WhatsApp on secondary devices to be used without a data connection on the primary device.
