A current beta version of WhatsApp is already making users dream of a certain feature.

  • A new

    WhatsApp

    * update could bring a long-awaited

    feature

    .

  • A current

    beta version of

    the

    Messenger app

    already indicates this.

  • A date for the new

    update

Kassel -

WhatsApp

on multiple devices, and with just one

account

?

Many fans of the messenger app have wanted this for a long time, but this option is not available.

Until now?

At least a current

beta version of

the app points to the long-awaited feature.

As

WABetaInfo

reports, support for multiple devices is said to be in the WhatsApp beta version 2.21.1.1 for

Android

.

According to this, users could use the

app

with one account on

several devices

without the "main device" having to be connected to the Internet.

The discovery in the beta version suggests that the

messenger service

is at least considering making this feature

available in

a future

update

.

Can WhatsApp be used on multiple devices in the future?

A beta version suggests this.

New WhatsApp update?

Public beta could provide clarity

There is currently no way to use

WhatsApp

on multiple devices.

There is only the

option

to

log

in to "

WhatsApp Web

" * in order

to use

the messenger on the

PC

.

However, it is necessary

to link

the second device, i.e. the PC, to the

smartphone

.

The latter must also be constantly connected to the Internet for data transfer to work.

Should there soon be a “public beta”, i.e. a

beta version of

the

app

that can be tested by all users,

rumors

about “multi device support” could be confirmed.

In the event of an

update,

users would

no longer have to rely on WhatsApp Web to use the messenger on a

notebook

or

tablet,

for example.

Release date still unknown: WhatsApp update is a long time coming

As early as

May 2020

there was a rumor that

WhatsApp was working

on a corresponding feature.

At the time, however, it seemed as if the second device had to be at least in the same

WiFi network

as the

smartphone

.

It doesn't look like that at the moment.

But whether the

messenger app has

really discarded this obstacle and whether the function will even exist in the future is still in the stars.

Since there is still no official

release date

for the next

update

, users have to be patient a little longer.

It is also questionable whether the new feature appeases the users: Many had migrated to competitors such as Telegram or Signal because of a forced update on WhatsApp regarding data protection - but then WhatsApp rowed back for the time being.
