The facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp’s multi-device support is probably one of the most beneficial features that could come for its users in 2021. We have earlier covered how WhatsApp has been functioning on this feature for a considerable amount of time before recently permitting some beta testers to test it.
Previously, users who wished to text their contacts on WhatsApp would have to scan a QR code in order to get access to WhatsApp Web. After this, they would be able to see the messages coming via their smartphone. Nevertheless, this had one substantial issue.
But, users would be disconnected from WhatsApp Web as soon as their smartphone lost Internet connectivity or ran out of battery. Furthermore, this was right for the WhatsApp Desktop applications for Windows and macOS.
With the newly launched multi-device beta testing on the Facebook-owned messaging app, WhatsApp eliminates this issue by permitting WhatsApp to function on users’ initial device (smartphone) and up to four other devices. And WhatsApp will also work even if the smartphone lost its internet connectivity.
Moreover, a question often asked about what is about to occur to WhatsApp Web after the multi-device support launches?
A WhatsApp spokesperson stated,
“WhatsApp Web remains an important platform for our users. Until now, WhatsApp has only been available on one device at a time. Desktop and Web support only worked by mirroring off your phone – which meant your phone had to be on and have an active internet connection.”
WhatsApp users keep in mind that once the multi-device support introduces, they will be able to add up to four more devices only. In addition, however, they will be able to add WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, or Facebook Portal only.
As per the famous feature leaker website WABetaInfo, the Facebook-owned messaging application, WhatsApp, might add support for adding different devices, including smartphones or tablets, later. Previously, WABetaInfo has detected a few tips of a ‘Log Out’ operation in an unpublished version of the application.
