WhatsApp inches closer to launching multi-device support
WhatsApp has been working on providing multi-device support on its platform for quite sometime now. Over the course of this year, reports have detailed the progress that the company has made in improving various aspects of this upcoming feature. Now, a new report gives us more information about this feature.
As per a report by WABetaInfo, the blog that tracks development in WhatsApp, the Facebook-owned messaging app is currently testing how the calls will be configured when this feature is turned on. The tipster says that since last week WhatsApp has been testing how calls will work for the same account between different devices. This indicates that the company is serious about this feature and that we should see this feature being rolled out in future.
However, the tipster said that there is no word on the release date of the feature yet.
Meanwhile, reports in the past have detailed aspects of this feature. For instance, one report by the tipster says that the users will be allowed to use the same WhatsApp accounts on four different devices at the same time and that the main device won’t be required to have an active internet connection, as is the case while using WhatsApp Web.
Reports in the past have also stated that the multi-device support will be in the app under the Linked Devices section. Here users will be able to add a new device by tapping on ‘Link a New Device option.” Users will also see a toggle button to enable or disable this feature along with a list of all the connected devices.
