WhatsApp provides a way to check how many devices are currently signed in to a certain account so that people can check the login details. Here’s how to use one WhatsApp number on two mobile phones.
WhatsApp is rolling out a new feature that allows people to use one WhatsApp number on two mobile phones. This is an extension of the current Connected Devices feature that launched earlier this year. However, the latest update is currently only available for beta testers of the platforms. It is yet to come to the stable version of WhatsApp and the company could make it available to everyone in the coming months.
Currently, all WhatsApp users can access their existing account on just one smartphone, and people can connect up to four other devices such as laptops and tablets. Now that the company is planning to allow people to log into one WhatsApp number on two phones, it will make life easier for those who use two mobile phones.
WhatsApp will also provide a way to check how many devices are currently signed in to a particular account so that people can check their credentials. This will also give users some sense of security and not worry if their account is being used on an unknown device. The good thing is that WhatsApp will allow people to log out from any device remotely, which you will be able to do using your primary phone.

People who want to try out the new WhatsApp feature will first need to sign up for the beta version of the messaging app. While the app’s beta program remains mostly full, you can still try your luck. Go to the Google Play Store and search for WhatsApp. Once you open it, you will see Beta program written on the page. If you see the message “The beta program is full”, it means that you will not be able to sign up for it. What you can do is keep checking the Play Store for the beta program.
