Popular messenger app, WhatsApp is likely to allow its users to access their accounts in as many as four devices.
The feature has been circulated to come for quite some time now but recently WABetaInfo tweeted an image that shows a peak at the new feature. However, the feature tracker said that the feature is still under development stage and has not been released for beta testing as of now.
Currently, Whatsapp users can access their accounts on Whatsapp’s web application while being connected to their smartphone app. So users who have wanted to be able to use their account on more than 2 devices will soon be able to do that.
WABetaInfo is a fan website and it tracks WhatsApp beta. WABetaInfo on Twitter revealed that the feature is currently under development stage.
“Yes, it’s the ability to use your WhatsApp account from four devices at the same time.
Under development, but it’s great! ” the tweet reads.
However, the update, left many questions, like whether it will work across platforms, that remained unanswered.
Earlier in the month of April, WABetaInfo also announced that WhatsApp is working on a new update that may require scanning the QR code of a particular profile on multiple devices. The report further said that there may be some time before the multi-device support is available for the users.
It was also reported that the new multiple device system may be independent and the users don’t need to use the phone to link and initiate the application like currently when using WhatsApp web. Every time a user would log in, the encryption key is expected to be updated.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp has brought several features including dark mode, encryption, etc. the group is also working together on bringing expiring messages, new video chat features, ShareChat integration, search by date, and delete options shortly.
