WhatsApp Begins Testing Ability to Share Status Updates From Web Interface, Companion Devices

WhatsApp is adding support for sharing status updates from some linked devices, according to details shared by a feature tracker.

The Meta-owned messaging service will soon allow users to post status updates from the web version or from linked 'companion' devices.

Users who have signed up to test beta versions of WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp for Android can already try out the new functionality on their secondary devices. Companion mode for WhatsApp allows users to access their chats on four other devices, even when their primary smartphone isn't online.
