New WhatsApp function is in the starting blocks
Use the same account on multiple devices. This has long been on the wish lists of WhatsApp users. Developers are now hinting at the feature in a current beta version of the messenger tool.
According to WABetaInfo , WhatsApp is currently working on a beta version that will allow use on multiple devices. The company has already developed the appropriate basis for this. An option in the WhatsApp web function should enable other devices to be connected directly.
TECHNOLOGY BUTTON had already reported on the new user interface . WABetaInfo now has information and images that show that WhatsApp is working on providing a beta version with multiple use for testers. The version is not yet available, but since the user interface is already in place, it could be played out soon.
Currently only via the browser
So you can currently only use WhatsApp as “WhatsApp-Web” via browser on another device. A connected main device is required, i.e. usually the smartphone. The browser and main app are then synchronized, the messenger data is sent via the smartphone, thus enabling use on two devices.
Use multiple devices on WhatsApp
If the test in the beta version is successful, nothing stands in the way of using it on multiple devices. Unfortunately, there is still no official confirmation for the widespread use of the feature. In the positive case, users can look forward to the simultaneous use of several smartphones, for example.
The rumor mill in terms of multi-device use was already brewing in May of last year. Initially, the other device had to be in the same WLAN, but the latest signs suggest that the different application options are completely independent.
Finally, confusion about WhatsApp
In the USA this will be possible in the future. Tesla boss Elon Musk now recommended using the messenger signal.
Also interesting: From February 8, a lot of WhatsApp data will end up directly on Facebook – but not in the EU
In terms of ease of use, the multi-device support feature is good news. No release date is known yet, but users are already looking forward to integrating multiple devices.
