You can use your WhatsApp account on two different mobiles with a little WhatsApp trick, so you can talk on one of the two phones, keeping the conversation in sync as it would happen if you used Web WhatsApp from your computer.

It might not make much sense to use the same WhatsApp account on two different phones, but it can come in handy at some point. Obviously both devices must be locked in so that conversations can be synchronized and the conversation is not lost.



That's just how WhatsApp Web works. But don't try to try both on the same mobile because if you open the WhatsApp app and WhatsApp Web from the browser of the same smartphone, you will be automatically redirected to the application, so it's impossible.

The trick we will use to open WhatsApp Web on mobile is enable desktop view, so you can see the same interface that you would see if you opened WhatsApp Web on a computer, but you're actually doing it from a mobile device. This is what you should do:

  1. Open the WhatsApp app and in the case of iOS, go to Settings / WhatsApp Web. Now click on «connect device».

  1. After that, go to the browser of the other phone and access the WhatsApp Web website, whose address is web.whatsapp.com. In the colon menu, choose the "desktop view" or a similar option and you will see that it now opens correctly because it has been redirected to the official WhatsApp website.

  1. The only thing you have to do now is scan the QR code from the first phone, whose camera will open when you click on the connect device option. Hopefully, WhatsApp Web will open on that second smartphone and you can start talking to another person.



This service it is meant more for a computer and it will be more comfortable for you because you will write with a keyboard, but since it doesn't have this limit, it can be used in the browser of a tablet or mobile phone with that little trick, by activating the corresponding option. But there is something else.


There cannot be two instances of Web WhatsApp open at the same time, so if you already have one on your computer, having opened another on the secondary smartphone, the PC session will be closed and you will no longer be able to use it, unless you go back to configuring it again.


This is the procedure for have the same WhatsApp profile on two phones and chat with your contacts using a trick for WhatsApp Web, at any time you can decide to close the WhatsApp Web session and have WhatsApp again only on one of the terminals.
