WhatsApp Multi-Device beta now rolling out to select users. It allows you to continue your conversations on up to four devices, including your desktop or laptop, even if your phone is switched off or disconnected.
These devices can connect to your WhatsApp account separately, so you don’t need to worry about maintaining the connection on other devices.
WhatsApp syncs your history across all devices. This includes chat archives, contact names and starred messages. This allows you to enjoy WhatsApp on all devices and ensures continuity so you can continue where you left off.
Multi-device WhatsApp support beta testing is underway. We tested it, and we are happy to share the details.
WhatsApp Multi-device Beta: How it works
WhatsApp claims that the multidevicemultidevice solution utilizes new technology to ensure end-to-end encryption across all devices. This will ensure your conversations remain secure.
WhatsApp multidevicemultidevice beta also works seamlessly, so there’s no need to do anything extra.
In practice, I only had to enrol in WhatsApp multidevicemultidevice beta and scan the QR code once it was done to log in to WhatsApp from my laptop.
It makes WhatsApp a while to download your chats onto your laptop. After this was completed, I switched on airplane mode on the phone and began texting with my laptop.
The whole experience was smooth and simple. It was almost identical to regular WhatsApp messaging.
After sending several messages via WhatsApp on the laptop, I switched off airplane mode and synchronized all my recent messages instantly on the phone.
Telegram works on both your phone and computer so that you can use it with WhatsApp.
