Using WhatsApp on multiple devices has been an anticipated feature from all WhatsApp users, the feature has been in works for a very long time, and now, the company has promised it will be released in two months.
WhatsApp CEO has now confirmed that the multi-device feature support will be rolled out in a public beta within two months. However, you’ll only be able to connect up to 4 linked devices. WhatsApp on iPad might also be supported using the multi-device option.
This means that users will be able to use their WhatsApp account on up to four devices either on Android or iOS devices without needing to uninstall the app on the first device. Users can also log in to their account on multiple devices, at the same time.
In a recent interview conducted by Wabetainfo with Mark Zuckerberg, these three features will be releasing soon.
Disappearing Mode: is coming to WhatsApp, which automatically enables ephemeral messages in new chat threads.
View Once: Mark Zuckerberg also confirms that View Once will be rolled out soon, so the recipient can only open your photos and videos once before they disappear from the chat:
Multi-device Feature: Which we’ve highlighted above. It will be rolled out to beta users, before the general public. It has also been confirmed that WhatsApp on iPad may likely support multi-device features when rolled out.
For now, users are waiting for the multi-device feature to be rolled out in 2 months’ time according to the confirmation of Will Cathcart.
