BILLIONS of WhatsApp users have gained a handy new feature – but it may cause arguments for some.
The popular messaging service has announced that it is finally rolling out multi-device login for more than one phone.
WhatsApp users will now be able to log into the same account on up to four different devices.
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the huge announcement on both Facebook and Instagram.
It means you can switch between phones without signing out and pick up your chats where you left off.
While for small business owners, additional employees are now able to respond to customers directly from their phones under the same WhatsApp Business account.

This is a significant change from the previous limitation of using one WhatsApp account on only one phone and multiple companion desktop devices.
The messaging service confirmed that the update has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
And social media users were quick to weigh in with their opinion and post jokes about how the change could affect couples.
The milestone change means partners can see WhatsApp messages from another device for the first time.

Facebook commenters joked that this would see any unfaithful couples easily rooted out.

"Haiya! You want to break marriages," commented one user.
While another joked: "That's gonna be a problem for jealous couples."
A third said: "That's very good, no more cheating."
"The way relationships will end faster," laughed another.
Others wondered about technical details with so many devices connected.
One asked: "When someone calls, which phone will ring?"
"Unfortunately, I think it’s not useful, it’ll be more helpful if I can open more than one account in the same device and switch between them", said another.
