The beta version of WhatsApp's multi-device support has begun to roll out to users of both Android and iOS, enabling them to access their accounts on additional devices even when their primary devices are turned off or not connected to the internet. You can simultaneously connect to four devices using the WhatsApp feature. The specialty of this version is that users will still be able to send and receive messages on the app even when their phone is not online.
WhatsApp's multi-device support allows users to link their instant messaging account to a second device, such as a computer, laptop, or even the Facebook website. Conversations between users on the secondary device are still encrypted end-to-end by WhatsApp. This means that neither WhatsApp nor any other party can read your private chats.
As of right now, beta testers with iOS and Android devices can take advantage of WhatsApp's cross-platform support. Please keep in mind that because the feature is still in beta, there may be some performance issues that will be ironed out by the time a stable version is released. To join the beta program, follow the below-mentioned steps.
