WhatsApp, Meta’s cross-platform messaging service, has recently introduced a new feature that allows users to link one account to up to four Android smartphones using Companion Mode. This feature is now being rolled out to Apple iPhone users.

Companion Mode allows users to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices while keeping their messages and data in sync. This can be helpful for people who want to use WhatsApp on their work phone and personal phone.

To use Companion Mode, you will need to have the latest version of WhatsApp installed on all of your devices. You can then follow these steps:

  1. On your primary smartphone, open WhatsApp.
  2. Tap on the top right dots to get an option for ‘Linked Devices.’
  3. Scan the barcode on the second device to activate companion mode.

Your iPhone will now be linked to your primary smartphone. You can use the Your Phone app to access your phone’s notifications, photos, and messages from your PC.

But it is important to note that if your primary device loses internet access, WhatsApp will automatically log you out of your secondary devices. Additionally, some features, such as messaging broadcast lists and status updates, are only available on the primary device.

WhatsApp Update for iOS

WhatsApp’s new version, 23.10.76, for iOS devices, will bring a companion feature to iPhones. However, the update is being rolled out in phases. According to the changelog on the App Store, eligible iPhone users can expect to receive the update within a week.

In addition, the latest WhatsApp update for iOS also introduces several other features. These include GIF auto playback, the ability to schedule WhatsApp calls using the iOS calendar, and the option to save important messages when using the disappearing message feature. iPhone users can easily use these features in the latest version of WhatsApp.
