WhatsApp will soon allow you to use your same account on several devices. This is a very important novelty that other apps like Telegram have been including for years and, in addition, could mean the arrival at the end of native applications for iPad and Apple Watch.
Since WhatsApp exists its way of logging in has not changed and it is through a phone number, but when you logged in to another device the previous session was closed, this should change very soon according to the new information that just appeared.
Soon you can use WhatsApp on several devices at once
Some time ago WhatsApp launched WhatsApp Web, a kind of app that we can access from the internet and from any device, for example, an iPad. WhatsApp Web was the only way to have WhatsApp open on two devices, however, it completely depended on our smartphone.
If our iPhone turned off or stopped having coverage, WhatsApp Web stopped working on our iPad or computer. Apparently, this will cease to be so soon what will open a wide range of possibilities. As reported by the WABetaInfo account on Twitter, you will soon be able to use WhatsApp on your computer even if your iPhone, Android or Windows Phone is turned off.
And yes, in according to my rumor, UWP + the new multi platform system = you can use WhatsApp UWP on your PC if your phone (Android, iOS or Windows Phone) is off. https://t.co/PgNZTnOxlj

In principle, the information refers to WhatsApp on the computer, which will be independent of our iPhone, but it is easy to imagine that this function could easily be extended to other devices. For years we have asked WhatsApp to launch an official app for the iPad and another for the Apple Watch, but the problem was precise that you could not have the same account started on several devices.
With this news that WABetaInfo announces, this restriction disappears and we may finally see how new apps reach the rest of Apple devices. We know that WhatsApp is working on an iPad version that is most likely related to this new information that just appeared. At the moment everything is a rumor and there is nothing confirmed, but it seems that the world’s most used messaging app is working on it.
