WhatsApp new feature: WhatsApp has started multi-device support for its users. This means that now WhatsApp users will be able to use the service of their account on five devices simultaneously. At present, this service has been started as a limited public beta test.
With the help of new multi-device support, users will be able to use the service on their phone and four other devices simultaneously. The special thing is that WhatsApp users will be able to read their messages on other devices even after their phone’s battery is exhausted. Till now mobile phone is the primary device for WhatsApp connectivity and that WhatsApp account can be used on computer or laptop only as long as the phone is on and connected to the internet.
As of now, WhatsApp linked to an account number works only on phones. Users have the option of WhatsApp Web to access it on the desktop. But for this it depends on the connection of the phone. With the new public beta, all that will change. On the Facebook engineering website, the company said that in the new multi-device support, each device will connect to your WhatsApp independently, maintaining the same level of privacy and security through end-to-end encryption.
WhatsApp has developed new technologies to maintain end-to-end encryption. Data such as contact name, chat archive, starred messages will be synced across devices. According to the post, the company had to rethink the architecture and design of WhatsApp to enable it.
