It is no longer necessary to keep your smartphone connected to the Internet at hand to connect to WhatsApp from another device, reports

Phonandroid on 

Monday.

Thanks to the latest update of the Facebook group app, the user can link different devices to their account.

Previously, to synchronize your WhatsApp account on another device or connect to WhatsApp Web, you had to scan a QR Code from the original smartphone.

The operation had to be repeated each time.

To take advantage of the new procedure, you must first join the beta user.

To do this, you must open the WhatsApp application, click on the menu at the top right and select Connected devices.

You will receive a notification and click on OK.

Next, you need to click on Multi-Device Beta and then click on Join Beta.

You must then go back and select Connect a device.

Finally, just open WhatsApp on the device of your choice and scan the QR Code with your smartphone.

Several problems still exist

Once all these operations have been completed, you will be logged into your account with the new device. And the advantage is that you will not have to redo this process. “Once your devices are paired, you no longer need to leave your phone connected to use WhatsApp Web, Desktop or Portal,” says WhatsApp. But be careful, if the new device is not used for 14 days, it will be automatically disconnected. Additionally, only four devices can be synced to the same account.

There are also other restrictions.

One is for iPhone users.

It is indeed impossible for them to delete their conversation from the new device and WhatsApp has no explanation for this problem.

More annoying perhaps, the new functionality is absent from the tablets.

To use your WhatsApp account on these devices, you must therefore always use the old method.

On the other hand, you must ensure that you have the latest version of the device to be able to make calls.
