The users of the WhatsApp Beta have access to the tool to use an account on up to four devices at the same time. That’s what counts WABetaInfo this Saturday (19), a site already known for anticipating information about news from the messenger. The release date of the feature, however, is still a mystery.
New information about the ability to connect and sync the account between devices has been discovered in a future version of WhatsApp for Android. As the website shows, on the “Linked Devices” screen, you can view the “Multi-device Beta” option to enable the feature.
According to the description of the configuration, “if enabled, all of your linked devices can work without a connection to your phone”. O WABetaInfo it also brings some details about the tool’s operation: according to the website, when activating or deactivating it, all sessions started will be closed immediately.
The first traces of the function began to appear in 2019. In June 2020, more details about the tool were made public, such as the limit of up to four devices. The novelty will also include notifications about changing the security code and a command to disconnect all enabled devices.
According to the website, the next step is to bring the news to WhatsApp Beta users, while some features are already ready, such as the tool to migrate account information between devices. Still, there is no forecast for the launch of the function for the messaging application for Android and iPhone (iOS).
WhatsApp tests new options for wallpapers
WhatsApp is still working on other new features for the messenger. This is the case with the new settings for wallpapers in the messaging app, which will allow you to select a different wallpaper for each conversation. In addition, users will also be able to choose solid colors to stamp the chats with WhatsApp doodles.
Other news for WhatsApp Web are also in the oven, such as the option to initiate voice and video calls directly via the desktop version of the messenger. In addition, the app’s developers work on a fingerprint authentication function to start a new session of the web version.
The features are not yet available to users of WhatsApp Beta and the final version of the messenger for Android and iOS.
