WhatsApp will allow users to use same account on multiple devices soon

WhatsApp has been introducing new features recently like Business Manager Catalog, Settings UI refresh, Face ID/Touch ID biometric authentication, privacy measures, etc. In similar lines, new reports suggest that WhatsApp will soon allow users to access its popular messaging app on multiple devices, at the same time.

According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is said to be working on allowing users to access their same WhatsApp account on multiple devices simultaneously. With this new feature, users will be able to use their same account on iOS and Android without having the need to uninstall the app in one operating system. Users can also login to their account on multiple devices, at the same time.

The report also suggests that users will be able to use WhatsApp on their computer without the necessity for an internet connection on their smartphone using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app which is said to be in development.

In other news, WhatsApp is said to be working on getting a verification code-in app to use WhatsApp on the second device, Quick Edit Media shortcut, etc.

The new feature is said to be in under development and there is no information on when WhatsApp will launch this feature officially.
