WhatsApp has been working on a lot of features under its beta application and continues to bring them for the general users once the testing concludes to deliver a new user experience.
However, there’s one specific feature called – Multi-Device, which is under development for quite a time and WhatsApp developers have been quite optimistic to release it as soon as possible.
According to the latest information coming from WAbetainfo, the Multi-Device feature will initially be available for WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and WhatsApp Portal. This means users won’t be able to link a smartphone with another Android or iOS device.
The feature first decides to land on the above-mentioned platforms but it could also come on mobile devices as well.

After your devices are linked, your phone will no longer need to stay online to use WhatsApp on the web, desktop, or Portal. Up to 4 additional devices and 1 phone can be used at once.
However, a user cannot message/call from the web, desktop, or portal to users who have an outdated version of WhatsApp on their devices, and performance as well as the quality of the content may be affected after on different platforms.
More information about the Multi-device feature is yet to come, so stay tuned…
