"This is a feature highly requested by users, now you can link your phone as one of up to four additional devices, the same as when you link with WhatsApp on web browsers, tablets, and desktops.
"Linking phones as companion devices makes messaging easier. Now you can switch between phones without signing out and pick up your chats where you left off. "Or if you’re a small business owner, additional employees are now able to respond to customers directly from their phones under the same WhatsApp Business account."
"Each linked phone connects to WhatsApp independently, ensuring that your personal messages, media, and calls are end-to-end encrypted, and if your primary device is inactive for a long period, we automatically log you out of all companion devices.
