Use WhatsApp On Multiple Devices [WhatsApp New Feature]: WhatsApp has been working for a long time to provide support for using an account on its platform across multiple devices at the same time.
WhatsApp also confirmed work on the feature for the first time in early June 2021.
Will Keithcart, head of WhatsApp, and Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, confirmed that users will soon be able to use multi-device support in the messaging service.
However, he did not specify how long this will happen, but now more details have been leaked regarding this biggest feature of this year.
These details indicate the limitations of multi-device support and on which devices they can be used simultaneously.
Not much is known about how the multi-device feature will work on multiple devices.
WABetaInfo, the site that leaked details of WhatsApp features, has now released the details.
According to the report, users will be able to link up to 4 devices simultaneously from their WhatsApp account, but these devices will be limited to WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and Facebook Portal.
The report shared a screenshot of the beta version that contained the details but said nothing about logging out of LinkedIn devices or that it would be introduced later.
What will WhatsApp users not be able to do with this feature?
According to the report, users who are currently using this feature in the beta will not be able to send messages to people who have an older version of WhatsApp on their phones.
What can consumers do?
Users who are part of the WhatsApp Multi-Device Beta can link accounts to one phone and 4 other devices, namely WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and Facebook Portal with their phone.
Once linked, WhatsApp will continue to work on these devices, whether the main device, the phone, shut down when the battery is out of charge, or if it doesn’t have Internet access.
News about the multi-device support feature first surfaced in July 2019, and WABetainfo reported at the time that WhatsApp was working on a new platform (Universal Windows Platform) that Allows an account to log in to multiple devices at once.
According to later reports, the main device will not require a dynamic internet connection like the WhatsApp web during multi-device support.
Simply put, even if you don’t have a phone, it’s still possible to use a WhatsApp account on the web or other devices, just like Facebook Messenger.
This feature will be called LinkedIn devices and WhatsApp will also introduce a new desktop version user interface for multi-device support.
