WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging platform, has launched a beta for its new Companion Mode feature. This new feature is designed to allow users to connect with their contacts even when they are unable to access their phones.
What is Companion Mode?
Companion Mode is a new feature that enables WhatsApp users to access their accounts on a separate device without having to log out of their primary device. This means that users can still communicate with their contacts even if they don’t have access to their phones, making it easier to stay connected on-the-go.
How does it work?
To use Companion Mode, users will need to link their accounts with a secondary device, such as a tablet or laptop. Once the devices are linked, users can access their chats, send and receive messages, and make voice and video calls.
Why is Companion Mode useful?
Companion Mode is particularly useful for users who travel frequently, as it allows them to stay connected with their contacts even when they don’t have access to their phones. It also makes it easier to switch between devices, as users can simply log into their accounts on their secondary device without having to log out of their primary device.
Beta testing and availability
The beta version of Companion Mode is currently available to a limited number of users, notes NIXSolutions. However, it is expected to roll out to all users in the coming weeks. To access the beta version, users will need to join the WhatsApp Beta program.
