WhatsApp is planning to offer multi-device support to iPad and Android tablets. Building on the test that began rolling out to selected customers last month. The ability to operate WhatsApp on several devices at the same time is multi-device support. You can use the same WhatsApp account on up to four non-phone devices. This implies that you will still be unable to use the same WhatsApp account on more than one phone. But you will be able to use the same account on WhatsApp for Web, Desktop, and Portal simultaneously. The company is now planning to offer support for iPad and Android devices as well.
WABetaInfo identified this future functionality. Previously, the only method to use WhatsApp on a computer was to keep your phone connected to the internet at all times after scanning a QR code to connect. This means if you turn off your phone’s data or ran out of energy, you’d be unable to use WhatsApp on your computer.
Multi-device support security:
The way multi-device support to iPad and Android tablets works is that your companion device will connect to your WhatsApp account independently. The company claims that they have created a new architecture to ensure end-to-end encryption. The company did not compromise the security while synchronizing conversations, contact names, chat archives, starred messages, and any other information between devices.
You can link companion devices by scanning a QR code. After that WhatsApp will impose biometric verification as an added layer of protection for compatible smartphones. Users may see all of their companion devices that have been paired via the app. As well as you can see when they last used the app. They can also log out remotely. Check out WhatsApp’s FAQ page on the multi-device capability for additional details.
Given that Android tablets aren’t very dissimilar from Android smartphones, it’s conceivable that the company is gradually providing multi-device compatibility for several phones. Currently, there is no way to log in to WhatsApp on several cellphones at the same time, however, this may change in the future.
