WhatsApp soon to bring Companion mode

WhatsApp soon to bring Companion mode

WhatsApp is said to be working on a new feature known as the companion mode. Reportedly, it is an extension of the multi-device function that allows users to log in on different devices. However, it has its own capabilities. The said companion mode will allow the users to link their WhatsApp account to a different smartphone. The mode does not appear to be connected to the multi-device capability, as WaBetaInfo says. It also suggests that the users might not be able to use WhatsApp on both phones, since the screenshot indicates that after you successfully connect to the second phone, WhatsApp will log you out of the primary smartphone. Furthermore, WhatsApp would also delete all data from the primary smartphone. Those that back up their chats and files to third-party services such as Google Drive or iCloud will be able to access all of their conversations on their second phone. The update comes from the WAPBetaInfo with the 2.22.11.10 update on the Android Beta version.

Felix- Motorola’s first rollable smartphone coming soon

Felix- Motorola’s first rollable smartphone coming soon

With the debut of the Motorola Razr in 2022, Motorola has already joined the foldable smartphones category. The device features upgraded cameras and more powerful internals. While the next-generation Razr is already in the works and will be released shortly, the Lenovo-owned business is now attempting to foray into completely new territory: rollable phones. Reportedly, Motorola is working on its first rollable phone, Felix. The brand appears to have a different idea for rollable phones than OPPO and TCL, both of whom have previously shown off their initial concept phones. Felix stretches vertically to make the smartphone taller (rather than wider). A third of the phone’s display is buried at the bottom and may be completely expanded on-demand to improve real-estate viewing. This is similar in idea to how the Motorola Razr uses foldable technology, with a focus on compactness and making the phone pocket-friendly. Although there’s no information about the smartphone launch, the Felix is not expected to arrive before 2023.
