The methodology is simple. So, when a person logs in with their account on a new device, WhatsApp will initiate the transfer of conversations from the original device.

Once this process is completed, if the user receives a new message it will reach all the devices on which they have signed in with their account. The smartphone will not act as a bridge or have to be connected to the internet. As for the security, WhatsApp will change the encryption keys every time the user logs in or out of a new device. As per the cited source, up to four different devices can be linked with each account.
This new system will not only allow you to use the same WhatsApp account on two different smartphones, but it also opens the doors to the future WhatsApp application for iPad. The report hasn’t revealed as to when all these features will be implemented, given the system’s complexity. But, it is expected to be available soon if reports are to be believed.
