It was last month when WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp is working towards adding support for multiple devices and it was spotted in the development phase. The clues about the feature, have again been spotted in the latest Android Beta update 2.20.143.
For those of you who are unaware of what the feature is all about, it’s a multi-device feature, meaning, it would allow users to operate the same WhatsApp account on different devices at the same time. This, in turn, would allow you to use the same account on your Android device as well as a tablet.
- The version 2.20.110 beta for Android comes with the feature which it is still inactive
- This version also sheds light on the feature that was earlier mentioned as ‘disappearing messages.
WhatsApp multi-device support spotted in Android beta; allows us to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices. The feature is under development right now and might be released for everyone soon.
WhatsApp is continuously working on improving the platform and make it a de-facto mode of communication for everyone. It has already increased the limit from 4 to 8 participants on WhatsApp Group calls for both video and voice calls, and now it appears to be readying itself to make the multi-device support available to its users.
The feature would allow users to use the same WhatsApp account on more than one device. If you own a tablet, then you will be allowed to use your WhatsApp account on your phone as well as your tablet at the same time, once the functionality is made available on the app.
As of now, WhatsApp users are allowed to log in only on one device. But, this might change soon as the multi-device has been spotted in the latest Android beta version, which means the feature is under development right now and might be released for everyone soon.
