WhatsApp’s multi-device feature has been at the fore for a while now. There have been several reports over the last few months which have been showing that WhatsApp is indeed working on making the multi-device support feature a reality. This feature has to be the most-anticipated WhatsApp features and if the latest report is anything to go by, the multi-device support could be called “linked devices” feature after which users might require a code to log in to multiple devices.
Wabetainfo has put out a recent tweet which says that in order to login in to multiple devices, a user would need to enter the mobile number and a code that it will receive as an SMS. “The phone number + a SMS code will allow to use WhatsApp on another phone.
Essentially, it is the same feature. WhatsApp might also plan to receive the code from a “WhatsApp chat”.
iPad will also be supported be supported, the features tracker said in a reply to a Twitter user who wanted to know how this feature would work once implemented.
The WhatsApp features tracker had earlier said that the latest Android beta update has already received two new features and this includes the Linked devices as well as advanced mode feature. These linked devices features is the multi-device support which has been spoken about for a while now.
In the coming days, the users will not only get the multi-device support but then also will be getting a dedicated option to manage all the devices that are linked.
“WhatsApp is testing this possibility with 4 devices and the feature is still under development. In the meantime, WhatsApp is working to create a UI to manage all Linked devices,” the report by Wabetainfo read.
