Multi device support
AdvertisementMulti device support is currently being tested and the company has not revealed when the feature will be available on the stable version of the app.
Currently, WhatsApp does not allow users to use the same account on different devices, a feature that has been available for quite some time on Telegram. Telegram allows users to log into a secondary device by sending an OTP to the first device.
The multi device support is expected to be named as ‘Linked devices’. It will allow users to log in on a new device by clicking on the ‘Link a new device’ button.
As per the report, WhatsApp recommends users to use a Wi-Fi connection while using the WhatsApp account on a secondary device. While it’s not clear why mobile data is not recommended, it’s possible that WhatsApp may copy all the messages and media on the new device.
As people are stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Facebook recently introduced Messenger Rooms that allow users to quickly place a video call and invite your friends with a link.
Now, Facebook is reportedly working on adding a shortcut for Messenger Rooms on WhatsApp. This will allow users to quickly start a video call with up to 8 people.
