The popular instant messaging platform WhatsApp has long been working on the Multi-Device Support feature, which allows users to log in to their WhatsApp account from multiple devices. About eight months ago, the company granted early access to this much-awaited feature to Android and iOS beta users. But until now it was an opt-in feature, meaning beta users could test this feature if they wanted to. But according to the latest reports, the multi-device support feature is no longer available on the WhatsApp beta platform. This means that it is no longer an opt-in feature, WhatsApp has started rolling out its stable. Simply put, the feature is now being enabled for all users.
Until now, ordinary WhatsApp users could only use one account from a single device. However, this time a WhatsApp account can be used from four different devices. For a long time, users have been waiting for this facility to use the same account from different devices. Needless to say, this news will make a lot of customers happy.
Advantages of multi-device feature
The multi-device feature allows users to access up to four devices at the same time. In beta mode, users will be able to log in to the desktop version of WhatsApp without the need for a primary phone with an active internet connection. This feature will be especially useful for those users who spend most of the day on a laptop or computer. Using a WhatsApp account from all four devices means they no longer have to check their phone repeatedly. Users can also easily send and receive messages directly from the desktop version of WhatsApp.
However, keep in mind that even if one WhatsApp account can be used on four devices, the same account cannot be accessed from two phones. This means that a specific WhatsApp account can be accessed from just one phone, and users can use laptops, computers, iPads, or tablets, regardless of the operating system, for other devices. Each device will independently connect to the user’s WhatsApp and maintain the highest level of privacy and security through end-to-end encryption. In other words, as always, there is no doubt that WhatsApp is keeping a close eye on the overall safety and security of the users.
