The world’s most popular messaging app tries hard to update itself and bring new features for its users. After implementing the most asked dark mode feature, the Facebook-owned company will soon allow using a single WhatsApp account across multiple devices.
WhatsApp is far behind the likes of Telegram and Signal while its inability to switch between multiple devices is a key flaw of this popular messaging platform. The Facebook-owned company is reportedly working on adding multi-device support to the mobile app in a subsequent release.
WABetainfo is a site dedicated to fishing out new features out of beta versions of the app stumbled upon this feature of multi-device support for WhatsApp. As we all know, WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption across all of its devices which means adding or removing a device will mean that there has to be a new encryption key for all future communication.
The feature is supposed to work in such wat that all contacts will receive a notification about the encryption key change in their chats. On the other hand, the Cross-platform support will be tricky as WhatsApp relies on Google Drive as a backup medium on Android and iCloud on iOS, so this feature won’t be available as for now maybe.
The multiple device support is an experimental feature which will only be found in a beta version of WhatsApp before it makes its way to a stable release of the application. All we can now do is to home it comes sooner than expected, now the only way to run WhatsApp on multiple devices is via the browser version.
