WhatsApp may soon let accounts be operate from 'linked devices', similar to how Google allows its users to do so via a single page.
Researchers at WABetaInfo — or WhatsApp Beta Information — continuously monitor development progress and code changes that may be in the works and they flagged one such update back in June.

The catch here is that 'linked devices' option has not been made available for testing yet. However, users can easily join one of WhatsApp's beta programmes to check out when the new update may be open for beta testing.
WABetaInfo, however, pointed out that "the label says 'Use WhatsApp on other devices' but actually it’s still not possible because WhatsApp is still working on it".
"The button 'Link device' is used to create a new session with WhatsApp Web. In future it will be used to create sessions with other devices," it added.
Moreover, WhatsApp announced last week that users may be able to mute any chat forever in a bid to let them stay away from clutter and constant notifications from group chats.
"You can now mute a chat forever," WhatsApp had said on Twitter.
