WhatsApp is planning to test feature that allows one user account linked on multiple devices
The latest version of the WhatsApp beta for Android features hints that the messaging app is testing the possibility for up to four devices.
This includes additional Mac computers. According to the information given, the messaging app could let users send verification codes to log into their accounts on an additional phone.
The platform has however not given a direction as to how the feature will work. For now, WhatsApp makes use of phone numbers to link to your Android or iPhones.
Unlike the new feature, you cannot link your number to more than one place except via desktop, which literally means that once you lose your number, you lose your account as well.
The future is currently still under progress. Whether the feature will be revealed in a future beta or rolled out on iPhones is another topic for another day. Thatis for WhatsApp to decide.
In other news, WhatsApp developers are really working hard on some features lately. It would be recalled that earlier this month, the messaging app started rolling out a number of new features all over its mobile, web, and desktops,including a QR code scanning option.
The feature is basically for contacts and new Dark mode theme that extends to computers.
