WhatsApp may soon roll out companion mode, check details

The instant messaging app WhatsApp is expected to announce a new feature very soon. According to the latest update, WhatsApp is working on a feature called companion mode. This upcoming feature will allow users to sync chat history between multiple devices. It is believed that WhatsApp users will be able to link a secondary mobile device to their WhatsApp account without having an active Internet.

Users are advised not to get confused between WhatsApp’s new feature and its multi-device support. These two are not the same. The multi-device feature allows users to link four different devices to one single account and does not let users link two smartphones to one account.

According to Wabetainfo, after the introduction of the new feature, currently under development, it will be easier for users to link a second phone to their WhatsApp account. This means users can access their WhatsApp account on two phones. Currently, users cannot access their WhatsApp accounts on two smartphones. However, they can access their accounts from the desktop, tabs, and other devices.

Other upcoming features of WhatsApp

In addition to companion mode, WhatsApp is also working on a feature that will give the flexibility to users to hide their online status from specific people in their contacts. It means users will be able to select who can see when they are online.

According to the reports, the Meta-owned messaging app will give users new options: “Everyone” and “Same as Last Seen to choose between. Once implemented those who are not in the contact list will not be able to see when you’re online.

Furthermore, WhatsApp recently introduced a new feature that let users hide their last seen and status updates from specific contacts. As per this update, users have an option “My Contacts except” option to hide their last seen from specific contacts.
