WhatsApp is working on introducing a feature that users have been waiting for for a long time as it is already present in other popular apps.

This new feature of WhatsApp will allow users to use their account on more than one device at a time.

Over the past few weeks, WhatsApp has introduced a number of features, such as increasing the number of group video chats from 4 to 8, adding contacts with QR codes, and offering encrypted data backups in beta.

But one of the most important features of this year is that the WhatsApp account has to be used on multiple devices simultaneously.

WhatsApp is the most used messaging app in the world and has almost replaced SMS, but the biggest shortcoming so far is that the user can access their account on more than one phone.

On another device, it has to complete the process of signing up again, in contrast, Facebook’s other app Messenger can be used on multiple devices simultaneously.

The company has been working on the feature since last year, but now the Twitter account WABetaInfo, which monitors WhatsApp updates, says the feature is now moving towards a beta version.

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

It is not yet clear how WhatsApp will support multiple devices, as well as how to keep messages encrypted.

But one estimate is the recent progress towards encrypting data stored on WhatsApp’s cloud servers.

News about the multi-device support feature first surfaced in July last year, and WABetainfo said at the time that WhatsApp was working on a new platform (Universal Windows Platform). Which will allow one account to log in to multiple devices at once.

Such a feature already exists in the Telegram messaging app, which makes it possible for users to login to multiple devices simultaneously from one account using cloud technology.
