WabetaINfo has announced the imminent release of multi-device support on WhatsApp for the WhatsApp web, desktop and Facebook portals. Post screenshot The screenshot shows that users will no longer need to be online on their phones after connecting their accounts to the web, desktop and portal. The WhatsApp Beta Tracker report further states that the app can be used simultaneously on four additional devices, including a single phone, with multi-device support. This means that the new feature will allow users to connect up to five devices simultaneously to WhatsApp.
Users can no longer communicate with people using older versions of WhatsApp on their phones (not messages or calls). This makes it clear that both parties need to use the latest version of the app to enable multi-device support. This can cause problems for people who can’t get the updated version of WhatsApp on their device due to the up-to-date operating system.
The screenshot shared by WABetaInfo also includes points that multi-device support will primarily affect “performance and quality”. However, initial errors can be corrected over time. It is assumed that users will also need to provide their own permissions to enable multi-device support on Android and iPhone devices. This will broaden the field of new experiences and will be useful for those who want to stay connected to WhatsApp all the time regardless of their device.
Earlier this month, Will Cathcart and Mark Zuckerberg talked about multi-device support in their alleged conversation with WWITINfo. Also worked on other new features. Officials suggested that it could be started within a period of two months. However, this kind of thing has been going on since April 2020.
