WhatsApp is now extending the ‘Multi-Device’ feature support for testing to multiple users, which include the ‘non-beta’ users as well. Until now, the feature was under testing and was extended to the beta-users. But now the company is also involving the ‘non-beta’ users for the testing process, which means the rollout of the feature might be very near. For the unaware, the WhatsApp Multi-Device feature will allow the user to run his/her WhatsApp account on four different devices simultaneously.
WhatsApp Multi-Device Feature to Allow Users to Use WhatsApp in Four Devices
Note that the four devices can only be ‘non-smartphone’ devices such as laptops and computers. Right now, if the user is logged into his/her WhatsApp account on one computer, he/she can’t access it in another one without logging out from the first computer.
But this will change once the support for the ‘Multi-Device’ feature is rolled out completely by the Facebook-owned texting application. A report from WABetaInfo suggests that WhatsApp will now be involving the ‘non-beta’ users in its testing process, which means the feature might be rolled out very soon.
The feature was first announced back in July. In a short period, the company must have tested it rigorously to allow non-beta users to be involved as well. One of the biggest advantages of this feature would be that once you have logged into your WhatsApp account on a computer, you will be able to access it regardless of your smartphone, which has the primary WhatsApp account being present.
In simple words, even if your smartphone is switched off, you will be able to access your WhatsApp account on your computer. This will be a very useful feature for many who use WhatsApp on their computers for work purposes and more. As of now, if your phone is not connected to the internet or is not switched on, you can’t access WhatsApp on any other device.
