WhatsApp multiple device support to allow your chat history to sync across platforms

WhatsApp is testing the feature in order to work with 4 devices at the same time

It’s been a year since we are hearing that soon multiple devices support will be introduced to WhatsApp. There have been many reports on this to prove that the company is testing the functionality on its platform as sometimes it is not easy to handle multiple accounts at the same time on multiple devices. The news is rife that the company is going to allow the users to sync their chat history across platforms when WhatsApp multiple device support is released.

The ability to use a single account across various devices at the same time is currently in the pipeline. The company is still working on this feature. According to a report by WABetaInfo the chatting app is also working to sync the chat history of a user across platforms. The company is testing this functionality in order to work with 4 devices at the same time. The publisher has also shared a couple of screenshots to prove that this feature is under development. The screenshots suggest that the company is working on to create an on the Android app and on WhatsApp for iOS to support up to 4 devices at the same time.

WABetaInfo reports that “When the user wants to use WhatsApp on a second device, there is the need to copy the chat history. In this case, WhatsApp always requires a Wi-Fi connection, because it may use a large amount of your data plan.”

According to the report when the user connects to the Wi-Fi network, it’s possible to begin the login process. To test this functionality the company has used WhatsApp Desktop, but this will also work on a second mobile device. For this, the app will allow mobile devices to be connected to your main device later than WhatsApp Desktop. “Note that using this feature, an Internet connection on your device will no longer be needed to use WhatsApp Desktop,” the report added.

In addition to this one needs to safely copy their chat history to the second device. In order to keep all the messages synced across platforms all the messages will be delivered to all the devices however the encryption key changes every time when you choose to use or remove a device. All your active devices will be notified when your encryption key is changed.

Also, the company has also developed an iPad app separately which is set for release when this feature is rolled out so the user will be able to use WhatsApp on your iPhone and their iPad at the same time.

The report further notes that this feature for the Android and iOS users has not been confirmed yet. Previously the chatting app was also spotted working to convert the iOS database to the one compatible with the Android format. Though these features are still under development that means the company is still working on its and will be released in a future update.
