WhatsApp for Tablet
According to a report by WABetainfo, a website tracking WhatsApp’s upcoming feature, WhatsApp was releasing a version of Companion Mode, which allows Android tablets to be linked to existing WhatsApp accounts. Now finally this has become possible due to the new companion capability.
Users will be able to run WhatsApp on the tablet without using the new phone number. Currently, only a few beta testers can use their WhatsApp accounts on tablets. However, the WhatsApp Beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update has revealed that the company will be rolling out a WhatsApp version for tablets in the future.
A banner will appear in the app
A screenshot is given in the report. It appears that WhatsApp is planning to release “WhatsApp for tablets” using a new in-app banner that will appear in future updates to the app. The banner will inform users that a new version of WhatsApp for tablets is available to beta testers.
Note that some beta testers may already link their accounts to WhatsApp on the tablet. Simply download the WhatsApp beta from the Play Store using your tablet to see if you can use the new version of Multi-Device. If you see a QR code screen after opening WhatsApp on your tablet, it means that you can link your tablet to your existing WhatsApp account.
If the QR code screen doesn’t appear, but you need to enter your phone number to log in to your account, it means you can’t link your tablet to your existing WhatsApp account and you’ll need to update it in future updates. Will have to wait.
