One of the essential features for apps that WhatsApp users miss is the multiple device support feature. However, WhatsApp has known the importance of multi-device support and has been working on it for quite some time.
This feature will allow the users to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices simultaneously.
The good news is that this feature is in its last development stage and it is expected that the stable version will roll out soon.
With this feature, WhatsApp users will be able to use same account in 4 devices simultaneously independent of each other.
According to WABetaInfo, after the multi-device support feature is introduced, WhatsApp will ask for a verification code that the users have to set beforehand.
The mobile app will also notify the users that the registration code has been requested for your account. In some screenshots shared by WABetaInfo, we got a glimpse of this notification feature.
It is also expected that WhatsApp will introduce a new UI for the desktop version for the multi-device support feature.
In the app, this multi-device support feature will be available under the option – ‘Linked Devices’. By using it, users can link their WhatsApp account to a new device, and will also be able to see the list of devices linked to their account.
Currently, WhatsApp can be used on multiple desktops using the WhatsApp web. However, for this, the user has to scan a QR code on the WhatsApp web from its WhatsApp app on the mobile.
The user can use WhatsApp on the desktop as long as there is a stable internet connection on the mobile. As soon as the connection is lost, the user can no longer access WhatsApp on the desktop. This is the reason why multiple device support for WhatsApp has been in great demand.
While it is in its final stage, still there is no official announcement regarding its roll-out date.
