WhatsApp will allow users to communicate on the desktop through the “calls tab” feature within the app sidebar. This feature will enable the users to track all the calling details.

The platform recently released the sidebar in version 2.2240.1.0 of the WhatsApp beta for Windows. This feature enables users to have faster access to multiple tabs including chat lists, status updates, and settings.

Earlier, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp is testing a new feature called “companion mode” for its beta users which enables them to link their accounts on multiple devices at the same time.

As per the report, once you have linked your WhatsApp account to secondary smartphones, your chat history will be then synced across all the linked mobiles.

Although the data is synced, messages and calls are still end-to-end encrypted and remain private. This means, even if someone sends a message from a linked mobile phone, the message is sent to all the linked devices preserving the encryption.

The feature is currently available to only a few beta users. Those who are enrolled in the beta program can install the latest WhatsApp beta for Android update on Google Play
