WhatsApp is testing multi-device synchronization without a phone – Pocket-lint
This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – WhatsApp is reportedly preparing to launch a test that allows users to connect to its messaging service from multiple devices without requiring them to be tethered to a phone, drastically changing how it usually works.
The feature has been rumored for some time, but is apparently set to enter public testing for the first time, signaling how close it is to finally being released.
The test will allow users to sign up to register up to four non-phone devices to their WhatsApp account, so they can send messages to those devices regardless of their phone’s location. It will apparently work with voice and video calls as well, ensuring you don’t run out of features.
This will end the problem of a phone with a dead battery destroying your ability to use WhatsApp on your laptop, for example, so it should come in handy if you get a large version.

At this point, however, it’s still under testing, so there’s no news on an estimated release date or rollout. Still, the project certainly seems to be progressing at a steady pace, so hopefully it won’t be too long before the update is available to everyone.
