WhatsApp working on automatic chat history sync for companion device | Figure


WhatsApp is working on a new update that will let you sync chats across mobile devices. The update will be rolled out through Google Play’s beta program, along with WhatsApp version, as reported by WABetaInfo. According to the site, WhatsApp is working to provide users with the ability to link a secondary mobile device to a single WhatsApp account.

WABetaInfo also shared a screenshot of the new update. Once the update is rolled out, the new feature will allow users to securely copy and sync users’ WhatsApp chats between primary and secondary mobile devices.

According to WABetaInfo, when logging into a secondary mobile device, it may take some time for old chats to show up as they are being securely synced. To this end, WhatsApp is working on adding the same system message that is displayed on the WhatsApp Web/Desktop app. On the desktop or web app, when old messages are not available, you are told that old messages are still syncing. The same message will now appear with the new feature on your secondary mobile device. There is, however, no fixed release date for the new feature as it is still under development.

It was previously reported that the app is working on the ability to link a second mobile device to a WhatsApp account without requiring an active internet connection from the primary device. This feature, called Companion Mode, is also to be rolled out. Once out, users will also be able to send messages through the second mobile device.

Moreover, WhatsApp also strives to give users the option to completely hide their online status. The new feature will ensure that only selected contacts will be able to see a user’s online status.
