While we are on lockdown, WhatsApp is busy adding more features to its messaging app, and one of the most talked about feature expected is the ability to use WhatsApp on multiple devices.
Though this feature is not yet available but according to reports from Wabetainfo, developers at WhatsApp is currently working on this feature. Discovered earlier back in November 2019, while tinkering with the latest WhatsApp beta APK, the team found more evidence of incoming multiple mobile device support.
When someone adds a new device in his WhatsApp account, you will be notified because encryption keys change.

It was able to trigger different event messages referencing multiple device support when a WhatsApp user’s encryption keys changed.
If this is true, you might soon be able to use your WhatsApp account on multiple devices like your mobile phone and your tablet. Just for clarification, this is different than using WhatsApp on the web. This new feature would allow users to verify their accounts in the native WhatsApp messaging app on multiple devices.
Like I said, this feature is still under development and we don’t know if it will function like WhatsApp web or like a normal WhatsApp on smartphones depending on what the developers decided.
If it eventually comes into fruition, then get ready to face more security risk of being hacked and kicked out of your primary WhatsApp account except if the new development will come with its own security features.
Don’t get hacked out of your normal WhatsApp, make sure you enable 2FA.
