Finally, you can have the same WhatsApp account on two phones. It’s a bit tricky at first, but it works.

WhatsApp has started rolling out the option (in beta) to link your existing account to an Android tablet. If both your Android phone and tablet have beta version, you should be able to scan the QR code on the tablet version of the app when you start installing it. Basically, which is like using WhatsApp on Windows or Mac today. The phone is still the primary device, but the secondary device is slightly more independent and works even if the primary phone is offline.

For now, this method also works for your phone by letting WhatsApp recognize your phone as a tablet.

Step 1: Make sure WhatsApp v2.22.25.8 Beta is installed, connected and running on your main phone. If you are using an older version of the app, you can download the APK file from APKMirror.

Step 2: On your second phone, enable developer options in main Android settings first. (Go to Settings > About phone and tap the build number several times until you see a popup saying you are now a developer.)

Step 3: Continue using the second phone. Go to Settings > Settings > Developer options > Minimum width. If you can’t find it, you can use the search option. Make a note of the current number (you will need it later to return it) and change it to 600. This turns your phone interface into a tablet interface.Fonts and icons will be reduced, but don’t worry, they will return to normal.

Step 4: Install WhatsApp v2.22.25.8 on this second phone. Again, you can do this on the Play Store if you signed up for the beta. Alternatively, you can manually fetch the same APK from APKMirror.

Step 5: Open WhatsApp, select your language and tap OK to continue. A link to the phone screen and a unique QR code will appear. (If you see a page asking you to sign in with your phone number, it means your phone hasn’t been tricked into ‘converting’ into a tablet. For smaller width settings, increase the number please look. But in theory 600 should be enough. )

Step 6: Now go back to your main phone. Open WhatsApp, tap the overflow button ⋮ in the top right corner, then tap Connected devices > Connect device. The QR code scanner will appear, so scan the code that appears on the new phone. it’s not him. Your second phone will need to reconfigure WhatsApp using the same account on your primary device

Step 7: If you are not satisfied with the tablet interface and smaller fonts on your second phone, you can repeat step 3 and go back to the smaller extension setting. WhatsApp will remain linked to your account.

And here we are. You will receive messages, calls, and pretty much everything on both devices. You can also start chats and conversations on both. Reading a message in one will mark it as read in the other.
