WHATSAPP has finally made it possible to use the service on multiple devices at the same time.

This includes PC and laptop use without having to “mirror” from your smartphone.

It’s one of the most-requested WhatsApp features, and has been for years.

Now WhatsApp is testing the new feature with a select group of users – before rolling it out to everyone.

“We’ve been working on this for a long time,” said WhatsApp’s Will Cathcart.

“Until now, WhatsApp has only been available on one device at a time.

“And desktop and web support only worked by mirroring off your phone.

“Which meant your phone had to be on and have an active internet connection.

“Now you can use our desktop or web experiences even when your phone isn’t active or connected to the internet.”

Sadly, the current test is limited to people who were already part of WhatsApp’s beta program.

However it’s likely that this will eventually expand to new beta sign-ups.

And somewhere down the line, the feature will become part of the general release that anyone can use.

WhatsApp said that each companion device has the same level of privacy and security as normal, thanks to end-to-end encryption.

How to get WhatsApp beta

To download WhatsApp beta for your smartphone you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.

Scroll down the page until you see "Become a Beta Tester".

Tap the "I'm In" button and then click "Join" to confirm.

Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.

Joining the WhatsApp beta on iPhone is more difficult, and has limited capacity.

But it is possible, if you’re really desperate to get your hands on early WhatsApp iPhone features.
