How to use WhatsApp on multiple phones

WhatsApp offers the ability to use two phones at the same time. Here is how to log in and see your WhatsApp chats on multiple phone.

Key Takeaways

  • WhatsApp allows linking to another phone for simultaneous usage across devices.
  • Follow these steps to sync WhatsApp on two phones.
  • You will be able to send and receive messages effortlessly.

For years, one of the major gripes we've had with WhatsApp was its limitation to use on only one phone at a time. Sure, you could access WhatsApp on additional devices like your Mac or PC via WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp Desktop, but simultaneous usage on two phones wasn't possible. You'd have to log out of one device before logging into another, necessitating the backup of all your chats. It was cumbersome and frankly, a major hassle.

But as of April 2023, that's all changed, and we couldn't be more thrilled. Now, instead of just being limited to linking up to four non-phone devices to your WhatsApp account, you can also link another phone as one of those additional devices, just like you would with WhatsApp on web browsers, tablets, and desktops.

If you're curious about how this fantastic WhatsApp feature works, we're here to guide you through it.

How to get WhatsApp on two phones

Follow these steps to get WhatsApp working on another phone, alongside your main phone, so you can have your WhatsApp chats running between two phones.

  1. Download WhatsApp on your new phone (or the second phone you want to use it on).
  2. Approve notifications and any other permissions it requests.
  3. On the screen where it asks for your number, tap the three dots in the top right corner.
  4. Tap Link a Device to generate a QR code.
  5. Open WhatsApp on your primary phone.
  6. Tap Settings in the bottom right corner.
  7. Tap on Linked Devices.
  8. Tap on Link a Device and use the camera to scan the QR code on your new device.

That's it!

Your WhatsApp chats will then sync across your phones — we're using it and it works — allowing you to send and receive messages simultaneously and respond or send from either phone.

This multiple device feature is of course a revelation for WhatsApp users, but there are several other tips and tricks that WhatsApp can do and has been able to do for years that are also worth checking out to get the most out of the messaging app. And the best thing? These tips and tricks will now work across both your phones!

Our favorites include sharing our location with a contact, searching all our chats to find specific information like an address, and quickly reviewing and deleting items to help clear storage, though there are plenty of others we like too. For example, did you know you could hide your profile picture from specific contacts, customize wallpaper for specific chats and even lock WhatsApp with Face ID if you're an iPhone user? Trust us, there is plenty to learn.
