WhatsApp started rolling out Multi-Device support feature for beta users

-

- Advertisment -

Earlier this week, Facebook-owned application WhatsApp introduced a Multi-device support feature which means now WhatsApp will allow its users to operate their device on multiple devices. The feature has been officially verified after many leaks and rumors over the period of years. WhatsApp users have been waiting for the features for a long time. As part of a beta test, WhatsApp multi-device support is now being rolled out to a selected group of users. According to Zuckerberg, the firm has also been working on this functionality for quite some time.

It’s been a big technical challenge to get all your messages and content to sync properly across devices even when your phone battery dies, but we’ve solved this and we’re looking forward to getting it out soon

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, Facebook.

Through this functionality, users would be able to use their WhatsApp on different devices even when their smartphone is switched off or doesn’t have a working connection. Earlier, users could use WhatsApp from other devices but they needed their smartphone to have a working internet connection.  Now, WhatsApp can be used through four different devices. Though, this functionality still excludes the use of another smartphone as a companion-linked device. However, there are some features of WhatsApp that won’t work under this new functionality:

  • This new characteristic won’t allow users to make calls through WhatsApp while working on another device.
  • A couple of years ago WhatsApp introduced a feature that allowed users to share their live location. Now, under this functionality sharing live location would not be possible while working on a companion device.
  • This functionality also won’t let the user make calls or messages from a linked device to someone whose device is not enrolled in the multi-device beta. .
  • Those users who have a business account on WhatsApp won’t be able to change their business names or labels from Whatsapp web.
  • While working under this characteristic, chats on WhatsApp Web or Desktop can’t be pinned.

Unfortunately, this multi-device beta has been launched for some specific markets whose identity is not clear yet.
