WhatsApp has recently launched several features such as WhatsApp Multiple Device Feature to enhance the user experience, and here is a new upcoming feature. This feature is one of the best features so far, it allows you to use an account on multiple devices. This article is all you need to know about the new feature.
What is WhatsApp Multiple Device?
This is an upcoming feature on WhatsApp that will allow users to sign-up with their WhatsApp account on multiple devices. As we all know, WhatsApp only allows one device to sign-up an account. If a user signs an account on a new device, the older one will automatically get disconnected.
WhatsApp has not confirmed when the feature will be made available to the public. We will have to wait for the messaging platform to reveal details about the feature and it’s rollout timeline.
When will WhatsApp Multiple Feature be Available?
According to WABetainfo, the WhatsApp multiple features is in the latest 2.20.143 beta update. This feature is turned off from the backend as it’s under development, a code has also be added for this feature.
Some clues for this feature was found in the latest Android beta version. the first clue is the WhatsApp Web screen, it was showing the string ‘Use WhatsApp on other devices’.
The second clue is that the beta now shows a new loading screen when you install a fresh copy of WhatsApp. The loading screen asks you to connect to a WiFi network before you can proceed to the setup process. If this is ignored, WhatsApp will show a message saying, “Using mobile data may be slow and may use a large amount of your data.”
It has not been confirmed by WhatsApp when this feature will be out. Therefore, we will have to wait for the messaging platform to reveal details about the feature, and it’s rollout time.
