WhatsApp is always experimenting with new features in order to improve the overall user experience. WhatsApp users will soon be able to link devices without the requirement for the smartphone to be connected to the internet on WhatsApp Web, which is the newest feature to be introduced.
In other words, WhatsApp users on both Android and iOS devices will be able to make use of the multi-device capability. Previously, users could connect their cellphones to their desktop computers, but they had to maintain their devices connected to the internet.
WhatsApp, on the other hand, will now allow users to link devices without the requirement for the primary smartphone to be online.
The beta version of the functionality, which allows you to connect devices other than your primary smartphone, is currently available. Linked Devices is an opt-in feature on WhatsApp that is labelled as “Beta” under the Linked Devices option in the Settings menu. If you select this option, you will be disconnected from all connected devices. You would be able to utilise it as you were previously when the new connecting was completed. Because you won’t be required to use your smartphone for the log in this time, things will be a bit different this time.
You will not need to keep your phone close to your laptop or to ensure that it is connected to the internet before using WhatsApp Web. If you do not manually log out of the connected devices, they will be able to receive and send messages for up to 14 days.
You might utilise this capability in situations when you could lose your smartphone but still need to keep connected via WhatsApp. This would also be useful in the event that your smartphone’s battery runs out when you are in close proximity to a connected PC.
However, you will not be able to remove messages or chat threads from a paired device if you are using the iOS version of the application. Additionally, you are unable to connect a secondary smartphone or tablet to the primary device. With the laptop, you can only connect one smartphone, which must be your primary phone.
Although this is only true for iOS devices, Android users can attach their devices to supplementary cellphones as a workaround.
In a similar development, WhatsApp users may now modify their photographs before sharing them through the web as well as on their mobile devices. Furthermore, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will provide users with sticker recommendations as they enter their message in the app. With WhatsApp’s contextual sticker, while users type, they will receive sticker suggestions, allowing them to select the most appropriate sticker at the most appropriate time to correctly express themselves.
