The latest beta version of the WhatsApp shows that it will get a Linked Devices section on the app to enable multi-device support. WhatsApp is working on this most awaited feature for quite a long time and now it seems that it will be introduced very soon. However, this feature is under development and is subject to change until the official rollout. After the rollout of this feature, users may get access to WhatsApp on multiple devices with a single account. There has been no announcement for the official release of this feature.
According to WABetainfo, the latest WhatsApp beta version 2.20.152 shows a Linked Device section which enables multi-device support. This new feature enables users to get access to WhatsApp on multiple devices using a single account. To confirm this WABetainfo shares a screenshot that reads, ” Use WhatsApp on other devices. Send or receive messages from your browser computer or Facebook portal.” Also, below this message, there is a green button with Link a New Device option.
Earlier, WABetainfo shared a screenshot of the login page which mentions how to login on a new device. Besides, the screenshot also reads, ” Without WiFi logging in may be slow and may use a large amount of your data plan.” It asks users to switch WiFi as it may consume heavy data. The main reason behind this message is probably WhatsApp could transfer the large files from the main device to the secondary devices.
WhatsApp continuously tries to push its limits to the new extent and introduces new features within the app. This latest feature allows users to use a single WhatsApp account on multiple devices and saves the efforts to create a separate account. This feature was first reported in 2019 and since then the company is working on its development. The latest beta version reveals more information about the feature although there is no fixed schedule for its rollout. Recently, WhatsApp extended its group voice and video calling limit to 8 participants from the previous 4 members. We expect the multi-device support feature will be available soon for rollout.
