WhatsApp may start early testing of its multi-device feature very soon. As the name of the feature suggests, you can log in to your one WhatsApp account on multiple devices. With this feature, users can link the same account in four devices simultaneously. Multi-device support for WhatsApp has been leaked several times. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp chief Will Cathcart have confirmed that multi-device testing can be rolled out to public beta users in a month or two.
WhatsApp’s popular feature tracker WABetaInfo tweeted on July 6 that multi-device support would be rolled out for testing soon. The tracker will soon introduce the rollout along with how to participate in the public beta program. The public beta program will only be available to certain users. The public beta program will initially be rolled out to a limited number of users and hence users will have to follow WABetaInfo to get notifications for real-time updates.
According to the features tracker, WhatsApp users will need to be on the latest beta versions of Android and iOS platforms to participate in the multi-device beta program. The first version of the public beta may be released soon and the company intends to test it before releasing it to all users. As mentioned multi-device support has been in development for over a year. The company said that behind the delay of bringing the feature, it is a big technical challenge so that your messages and contacts can be synced. However, the company is set to release the first version of the public beta soon.
