WhatsApp has been spotted several times to be working on the multi-device support feature. The latest WhatsApp beta Android update 18.104.22.168 gives a glimpse of how the much-rumoured will look like. The WhatsApp multi-device feature is likely to be called Linked Devices, as per screenshots found in the beta version by WABetaInfo.
The feature can be accessed by tapping on the three dots on the upper right corner of the app’s main screen. Once enabled, WhatsApp will let you use your account on multiple devices at a time without having to log out. The report suggests that users can log in to four devices at a time.
Users can simultaneously have conversations from either of their devices and the data is likely to get synced across too.
The feature is currently under beta on Android and is likely to be rolled out soon to the public.
