WhatsApp Beta gets support for use on multiple devices simultaneously

The ability to use WhatsApp on multiple devices simultaneously without moving the SIM card is probably the most requested feature by users, and it was promised a long time ago. Beta testers of WhatsApp have just received this capability in the new version of the app, with the final version coming in the near future.

In the next few months, the new WhatsApp feature should be released in the “stable” version of the app

WhatsApp can now be used on up to four devices at once, from smartphones to tablets, while the SIM card remains in a single, primary device. In the settings menu, the possibility to connect other devices (Link Device) appears, and those can be enrolled on the account by scanning a QR code on the source device. This connection mode is similar to what we’ve seen on the web version and in the desktop app.

Conversation history will be synced between all these devices, while conversations will still remain encrypted on both ends. However, in the test version, secondary devices do not yet have access to all WhatsApp features.

For example, you can’t send live location pins, nor can you manage your lists. Stickers can’t be used in this beta either. However, they will be available later, when their implementation is complete.

After adding the ability to use WhatsApp on multiple devices (the limit remains four at once), there’s only one wish left on the list of old users: a native iPad app. Apple tablet users are forced to use WhatsApp in the browser, just like desktop users. However, this method does not use the iOS push notification system and still has problems with some features, such as sending files and displaying menus correctly.
