It will now be possible to connect WhatsApp to 4 devices simultaneously without internet
The multi-device feature has been introduced in a new update of the globally popular messaging app WhatsApp.
According to Web Beta Info, a new update of WhatsApp 184.108.40.206 has been released which will make it easy for users to avail this feature even if they are not a beta tester.
What is a multi-device feature?
The multi-device feature allows users to connect WhatsApp to 4 more devices in addition to the basic device. Users who receive this update will be able to use their WhatsApp account on different devices.
WhatsApp had introduced this new multi-device feature on a trial basis in July this year, but now iOS and Android users will also be able to benefit from this feature.
WhatsApp’s new multi-device feature allows connected devices to access WhatsApp even if the phone doesn’t have internet.
So far, users need an internet connection to connect the WhatsApp in their phone to the web and scan the QR code to access the WhatsApp web. The flow of messages also stops.
But now that the WhatsApp multi-device feature has been introduced, that has changed.
How can the feature be used?
Open the WhatsApp and click on the Three Dots icon.
After clicking on Link Devices, the user will see the Multi Device Beta option at the bottom, which by clicking on it, the user can avail this new feature through Join Beta. If the user wants to leave the multi-device beta, he can go to the same option and use the leave option.
For iOS users
Go to Settings after opening WhatsApp.
After clicking on Link Devices, the user will see the Multi Device Beta option at the bottom, which by clicking on it, the user can avail this new feature through Join Beta.
After joining Multi Device Beta, users will not be able to call or message people from mobile, desktop or other connected devices who have an older version of WhatsApp.
If you don’t use your phone for 14 days, the WhatsApp will stop working on the devices connected to that phone.
