After a very long wait of three months, WhatsApp Multi-device support has now officially available to access for every WhatsApp user without joining the beta version.
On July 14, Meta-owned world’s most used instant messaging platform WhatsApp had started testing its most-demandable feature – multi-device support, and now, it is officially started rolling out for all users on Android and iOS, so users now no longer need to keep connected to their main phone with an active internet.
As a screenshot shared by WhatsApp features publication WABetaInfo, the “Multi-device beta” is now disappeared, which means those users who didn’t join the beta version of the Multi-device support feature, the new changes automatically enabled to their WhatsApp accounts as well.
Now use WhatsApp without keeping your phone online. This update logged out your linked devices and link them immediately with your phone.
The Multi-device support feature allows users to connect their WhatsApp account to a secondary device, including a laptop, PC, Mac, or Facebook Portal.
It is worth noting that even if you switch to another device to use the instant messaging platform, the chat messages will still be protected with end-to-end encryption security, so no one, including WhatsApp, could be able to read messages you send or receive.
To access this feature, Open WhatsApp > Settings > Linked Devices > Multi-Device Beta > Join, then you can start linking devices with WhatsApp. But noted that after connecting to other devices, if you don’t use WhatsApp on your phone for over 14 days, your linked devices will be disconnected.
WABetaInfo also noted that in multi-device version 2.0, the company allows users to link WhatsApp with iPad, however, the feature is still underdeveloped and there is no anticipated release date as well.
