WhatsApp beta users may soon get the opportunity to try out one of the most eagerly anticipated features on the platform. Following the most recent reports, WhatsApp would offer beta users early access to its multi-device feature shortly. WhatsApp has been believed to be working on the feature for quite some time now, but the company wants to hear what users have to say about it before releasing the final version. There are a handful more innovations in the works for the messaging app, according to reports, and they are present in the last phases of development.
According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp will invite users to assist it in testing the initial edition of the multi-device beta program, which will be available in the coming weeks. “Early access to the multi-device beta will be available very soon, allowing you to use WhatsApp Web on your phone even if you do not have an internet connection. Make sure to follow me so that you can be alerted when you are eligible to participate, as this may be a limited beta program. “I don’t know yet, so move quickly,” WhatsApp’s feature tracker said on its Facebook page. To be able to test the functionality, you will need to be running the most recent beta version of the software.
Multi-device functionality, as the name implies, will allow users to log into a single account from as many as four different devices. For example, you will be able to connect to your WhatsApp account from both your iPad and your iPhone at the same time utilizing this feature. To log into their WhatsApp account at the same time, customers may only do so using their phone and computer at the moment. No other device, other than your primary device, will be able to do this action. It is not even possible to use a Tab. WhatsApp, on the other hand, aims to alter that by making things more convenient for its users. However, before rolling out the functionality, WhatsApp will need to solve any restrictions or security flaws that may occur.
WhatsApp may introduce multi-device compatibility, as well as end-to-end encryption, to solve the security issues. WhatsApp features tracker wabetainfo claims that end-to-end encryption will be supported with many devices in addition to a single device.
Speaking of the multi-device functionality, Mark Zuckerberg stated during a discussion with Wabetinfo that the multi-device support will be available soon. This has been a significant technological hurdle to ensure that all of your messages and information sync properly across devices even when your phone battery dies, but we have overcome this and are looking forward to releasing it as soon as possible.” When users move devices, WhatsApp wants to make sure that the communications they send and receive are protected from prying eyes.
