According to GSM Arena, the latest WhatsApp Beta for Android (version 2.22.24.18) brings companion mode, which allows users to link a secondary phone to their primary account.

Beta users of the service can activate Companion mode by going to the options menu on the registration screen and selecting 'Link a device', reported GSM Arena. Android tablets can also be linked.

This is functional only for a limited number of Beta users, and will take time to arrive for other users, in future updates.

Presently, users of WhatsApp can access their existing account on the platform only on one smartphone, and when the new update arrives, they will be able to use a single account on 2-4 devices simultaneously.
