Well, for those of you who rock multiple phones, there is some good news. If the option to Mute people forever wasn’t enough, it looks like multi-device support is on the way too.The information comes from WABetaInfo, which scoured the beta versions of WhatsApp to see what’s coming. While multi-device support is not yet operational, there are signs of it – including a menu that illustrates how the feature works.
It looks like the future version of WhatsApp will allow you to link your account to another device and see which device is currently having a WhatsApp session open. It is similar to the current WhatsApp web interface, but it suggests that you can access your account from a browser other than a web browser.
The feature isn’t currently working so it’s impossible to say how it might work. We hope that this is actual access to your WhatsApp account on a new mobile device and not a mirrored version of what is being displayed on the “Prime” phone.
If so, access to multiple devices will depend on your phone being turned on and connected to the internet, which isn’t exactly ideal. Even so, it would be better to have to activate your account every time you need to use a different phone and lose access to the original in the process.
We hope this is some real multi-device support like you would with other messaging services. The option to log in and out at your convenience. For one, it doesn’t have the problem of being tied to a top-notch device, and it also has the potential to greatly improve WhatsApp’s desktop experience.
We have already seen that WhatsApp brings Video and audio calls to its web app, but it would be much better if it didn’t rely on your smartphone. Real support for multiple devices could make it properly independent without having to scan more QR codes to sign in.
Of course, that has its own problems. Messages would need to be stored somewhere in the cloud and not on user devices that have privacy and operational costs issues. And the more WhatsApp costs to operate, the more likely it is that Facebook will try to monetize it more aggressively than before.
Multi-device support is not yet available. However, if you want to try it out as soon as it finishes, you need to join the WhatsApp beta program. Android users need to be on their way WhatsApp beta page to Google Play and log in while Apple users wait to see if there are any free places on the internet Test flight page.
These were the details of the news WhatsApp has a killer feature along the way for this day. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
