WhatsApp has been working on the multiple device support feature for a long time and users are eagerly waiting for this feature.
Recently a screenshot of this upcoming feature has been shared in the report which claimed that the company is planning to launch this feature soon.
With the help of a multi-support feature, users will be able to use WhatsApp across multiple devices simultaneously. Whereas currently it can only be used simultaneously on smartphones and desktops.
This means that once you are able to log into up to five devices using a single account you will also be able to sync your messages across devices.
The WhatsApp features tracker in its report stated that once the feature comes into play, users will no longer have to copy their chat history every time they log in to a different device using a single account.
WhatsApp will automatically sync the chat history but it would require a working Wi-Fi connection as files could be large in size and hence can consume a lot of your mobile data.
“When WhatsApp has safely copied the chat history to the second device, it will be finally possible to use your account from it. Note that any message will be delivered to all your family devices, so your chat history will be always synced across platforms, and when you use or remove a device, your encryption key changes. When the encryption key changes, all active chats will be notified (if Security Notifications are enabled in WhatsApp Settings),” the report by Wabetainfo read.
Users can log into their phones and iPad at the same time. The feature is still under development and WhatsApp is yet to make an official announcement.
