A CLEVER WhatsApp hack can make your life much easier.
If you've ever wanted to use the app on multiple devices without having a phone nearby, it's entirely possible.
Previously you would need a smartphone to be online to use your WhatsApp elsewhere.
Now WhatsApp is testing a brand new feature that lets you use WhatsApp on up to four devices.
This is useful if you have a work phone and a personal phone.
Or it's great if your phone is out of charge or without signal and you still want to use WhatsApp on a laptop.
With the latest update, WhatsApp is pushing users on to multi-device support.
Everyone on the latest beta test of WhatsApp (which is free to join) is automatically opted in to multi-device support, as revealed by the sleuths at WABetaInfo.

To get access to the feature, you'll need to join the WhatsApp beta – a test version of the app.
This is where Meta (formerly Facebook) trials new WhatsApp features first.
Alternatively, you could wait for the feature to roll out to the general public – but that could take months.
If you want to find out how to join the WhatsApp beta, read on.
How to get WhatsApp beta
To download WhatsApp beta for your smartphone you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.
Scroll down the page until you see "Become a Beta Tester".
Tap the "I'm In" button and then click "Join" to confirm.
Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.
WhatsApp Beta can also be downloaded on a computer via the Google Play site.
Downloading WhatsApp beta on iOS is a much trickier and riskier process so this is not recommended.
