WhatsApp’s multi-device feature is set to come soon

Instant messaging app WhatsApp has been known to be developing a multi-device feature that will allow its users to use the same account on various devices at a time without being dependent on the main device for a couple of months.

Now, as per a latest report by WABetaInfo, the online channel that tracks the upcoming changes and features on the Facebook-owned app, the multi-device feature is in the final stage of being rolled out to the Android beta users of the app.

“The next plan of WhatsApp is to give to beta testers the possibility to use this feature,” said the report.

The report also mentions that while some features about the multiple devices option are still not ready, critical ones such as the option to sync the chat history, muting your chats, starring/delivering messages etc may be ready to be rolled out.

The report even provides a screenshot that shows the screen to ‘Linked Devices’ that has a dedicated section for ‘Multi-device Beta.’ Enabling this will allow other linked devices to access the WhatsApp account without a connection on the primary device.

Readers must note that once they enable this feature all their devices will show the same chats and will be synced. “When you turn on the toggle to enrol your WhatsApp account, and you create a new session, your devices will be in sync and any action taken from a device is automatically replicated on all your other devices,” added the report by WABetaInfo.
