WhatsApp recently announced that it is launching a number of expected features, including expanding group membership capacity, messaging and community responses, a feature that is still under development. Now, India’s most popular messaging platform, owned by Meta, plans to launch a new feature called Companion mode.
The messaging platform recently introduced support for multiple Android and iOS-based application devices in beta. He now plans to introduce this support as a new feature. The new mode means that users will be able to use WhatsApp from several devices with one account at the same time, according to a report by WABetaInfo.
While support for connecting to a computer is now available through the WhatsApp web feature or desktop application, the added feature will allow users to manage their WhatsApp account on more than one smartphone or other mobile device.

The report also shares a screenshot of the expected performance of the Companions feature. “Companion mode will allow you to connect this device to a registered WhatsApp account on your phone. Switching to companion mode will log out of your current WhatsApp account, “it is reported that the message will be displayed to users.
“This operation will delete all locally stored WhatsApp data, including your messages and media,” he added. Deleting locally stored data means that selecting Companion mode will take it out of another WhatsApp account that is already signed in to their secondary smartphone.
It is worth noting that the so-called Companion mode is still under development without official confirmation of its implementation. This comes after WhatsApp began deploying support for adding up to 512 members to groups, as well as an extension for file sharing of up to 2 GB.
