Ever wondered if using one WhatsApp in two different phones with the same account is possible? More than ever, smartphones are becoming, well smarter. People depend on them for everything, so much so that often having one cell phone or one SIM card is no longer sufficient. Most people have searched for dual-SIM tablets, or have at least two separate computers for different occupations.
Although the reasons for multiple devices can differ, it raises a few questions. How can I use One WhatsApp Account on two phones? For each phone number, do I need to make separate accounts?
This article is going to teach you how to use WhatsApp on two phones with one account, and to make it possible, you need not be an expert. In a few quick moves, on two separate phones, you can have the same WhatsApp account.
When you take a few moments to build a WhatsApp account, you need to have a number and wait for a code on a text message.
But there’s a trick you can use. Thanks to WhatsApp Web, this trick works. You may use the same WhatsApp account on different phones using this service if all of them have access to the internet. The WhatsApp application must be installed on one of these two phones.
Let’s take a glance at the step-by-step plan.
Steps To Install One Whatsapp Account On Two Different Phones
- First, make sure you have a phone updated with the new update of WhatsApp.
- On the second phone that you want to use WhatsApp on, open the Web browser, and go to web.whatsapp.com.
- It will automatically redirect you to the WhatsApp home page on the phone browser.
- Select ‘Request desktop site’ from the browser options (where you find this could vary from browser to browser).
- Open the web page with a prominently displayed QR code.
- If you have triggered the desktop mode successfully, you will see a QR code appear.
- On the phone that has WhatsApp installed, go to options/settings.
- Choose “WhatsApp Web” (If you are already using WhatsApp web on any other browser, log out before proceeding). It will fire up the QR scanner.
- Scan the QR code on the second phone with the WhatsApp application on the first, then the second phone will automatically log in with your WhatsApp Web account. On two phones, you can now use the same WhatsApp account.
That is all that you need to do!
The catch is that you can use this approach on only one additional phone to use one WhatsApp account (other than the primary phone) and you would have to log out of one to use it on another device.
You can use two phones using the same WhatsApp account if you follow the steps above correctly.
How To Log Out From Whatsapp Web
Access WhatsApp Web using phone #2 to log out. Click the Settings button (This can be done on Google Chrome by clicking the 3-dot icon and choosing the Desktop Site. On both Android and iOS devices, this method will work. This will have problems with scaling, though, so the user won’t have the best experience.) And then click the log out button.
Only two phones that have WhatsApp installed will work with this technique. It will log you out of one of the two devices if you want to connect to a third device immediately.
Notice also that WhatsApp Web could be removed automatically if the computers are far enough away from each other.
Why Use WhatsApp On Multiple Devices?
The above methods can come in handy for many users depending on your use case. If you run out of juice on your phone, but you want to continue chatting with someone, you can charge your primary device and use the second one instead. Also, on iPads and other Android tablets, users can finally use WhatsApp with Whatsapp web.
Do note that this feature currently allows only two devices at a time. Once WhatsApp has officially rolled out the multi-phone login feature, the app will work seamlessly on 2 or more phones.
If you try to move your WhatsApp account between various devices regularly, it might block you from re-verifying your account at a certain stage. Please don’t turn between various devices and numbers repeatedly.
Reiterating previous advances on multiple devices or the function of Linked Devices, the report says that certain things are still not ready, such as the possibility of synchronizing chat history and muting chats on multiple devices. A new modern UI for the desktop client is said by WhatsApp.
You will now be able to use one WhatsApp account on two phones or devices if you have followed all the steps correctly.
