Whatsapp will Soon Allow Users to Connect Multiple Devices
WEB DESK: The Facebook-owned messaging app, WhatsApp has been introducing all kinds of new features recently, and the latest one is that the company is developing a new multi-platform system through which users will be able to access their account on more than one device.
Right now the app only allows you to use your WhatsApp account from WhatsApp Web, and even for that, you need to have your mobile phone online and connected to your PC or laptop through the QR code. The new multi-platform system will give users the ability to remain active on multiple devices at the same time without being attached to your phone.
The new multi-platform option will operate alongside with WhatsApp’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, which is also in its development stage. With the development of this platform, users will be able to connect or login to WhatsApp Web on PC even if their mobile phone (Android or iOS) is offline.
The new feature will support multiple platforms including Windows, Android, and iOS. It is also unknown that this feature will support macOS or not. Also, it’s unclear if WhatsApp with the addition of this feature will keep its Web portal or replace it.
It is also rumoured that the new multi-party system is likely to be the reason the messaging giant has delayed the launch of its iPad version. It is also said that the iPad app will be launched soon, but it is not confirmed when it will go live.
