The much-demanded feature – multi-device support for WhatsApp is soon going to be released for public beta testing. The news related to the early testing of the feature has been announced by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo.
A screenshot has been shared on the microblogging website Twitter giving us the indication the multi-device support for WhatsApp will enter into the public beta testing phase. WABetaInfo which shares all the important updates related to WhatsApp took to Twitter to share the information via its tweet, informs that soon the instant messaging service owned by Facebook will ask the user to help in testing the much-awaited feature. For testing, the user needs to have the most updated beta version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS.
While sharing a screenshot the tweet reads, “WhatsApp will ask for your help to test the first version of multi-device beta program. You need to use the most updated beta version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS.”
In another tweet the WhatsApp features tracker says that the multi-device beta will be available very soon, so the users will be able to access the Web without an internet connection on the phone. As soon as the feature enters into early testing the tracker will announce the rollout so that you can be a part of the public beta programme.
Now coming to the shared screenshot shows a dialogue box inviting users to join the multi-device beta programme. It reads, “Use WhatsApp on up to 4 additional devices at once without keeping your phone online.”
Previous leaks suggest that this functionality will be working both for WhatsApp and Business so the users do not need to delete or uninstall the instant messaging app and would be able to simply log out of an account.
Right Now the social media app allows users to access the instant messaging app on other devices like desktops or laptops only via WhatsApp Web. The user needs to uninstall the app from their device or to delete their account to unlink a device therefore they have to suffer the loss of data if they have not backed up the chats.
So when the WhatsApp multi-device support arrives the linked devices will be able to work without an active Internet connection on the main device. The users are said to link up to 4 devices to your WhatsApp account.
