What do you do if you want to use WhatsApp on more than one device? In this article, we’ll talk about how you can add an Android tablet to your account, and also learn how to enable end-to-end encryption on chats. Once you’ve done that, you can start using WhatsApp on all of your devices. And keep reading to find out how to link a secondary mobile device to your account.
Add an Android tablet as a second device
Currently, WhatsApp users can only connect one mobile device to two others. This means that users cannot add a second tablet to their WhatsApp account, which is a bit disappointing. In the future, WhatsApp may add this functionality to its mobile application, but that remains to be seen. Until then, you can use WhatsApp on a second Android device to stay connected with your friends and family. This way, you can still receive WhatsApp messages on the second device, while not having to worry about losing a message.
If you want to send and receive WhatsApp messages on an Android tablet, you can use an app called Whatscan Pro, which you can find on the Google Play Store. You will need to have a stable wifi connection to use the app, as well as an Android phone with a web browser. Alternatively, you can use a desktop computer to view the QR code. You can then scan the QR code on the secondary device to receive all the messages that have been sent and received on the phone.
Allow users to chat with the same account on a secondary mobile device
Earlier this year, WhatsApp launched a beta test of a feature that allows you to use WhatsApp on multiple devices. This feature allowed users to access their WhatsApp conversations on up to four secondary mobile devices at a time, even if the phone was not nearby and the internet connection was not working. WhatsApp has since removed the beta test. Users can still use the feature, but it is unclear when the new feature will be made available for everyone.
The new feature, called WhatsApp Linked Devices, will be released to the public in November 2021. It is not yet fully functional, however, and some features of the app will not work on the secondary mobile device. While the feature is convenient for desktop users, it is not really necessary for secondary mobile users. The parent company of WhatsApp, Meta, has also confirmed that it will eventually launch WhatsApp Linked Devices as a public beta.
Enable end-to-end encryption on chats
When you use chat services, you can also opt for end-to-end encryption. When using this feature, your messages and calls will be encrypted, and you can be sure that no one else can read them. The only way to tell whether your chats are encrypted is to verify that both you and the other party are on the same device. You can do this by calling your contact and verifying that you are on the same network.
To enable end-to-end encryption on chats, you must make sure that you and your partner both have the Messages app and have the chat feature enabled. You must also ensure that your messages are sent in the RCS state, meaning that they are being sent over data or Wi-Fi. Then, make sure that you have enabled the chat feature. After setting this up, you can now send encrypted messages to your friends.
