After expanding the limit of people in video calls and testing greater integration with Messenger, WhatsApp is preparing the last details to release a feature that is very requested by users: support for the same account on multiple devices.
The functionality had already appeared in previous builds of the beta channel, and now the WABetaInfo people have found news within version 2.20.143. The big highlight this time is that the messenger already has a login screen for new devices.
See in the images below that WhatsApp should warn that using the same account on more than one device requires a good amount of data. Therefore, the application will recommend user access via WiFi.
The second screenshot shows that it will be possible to log out of all your extra devices or even add a new one using the QR Code. An important detail is that WhatsApp should restore all user history whenever it logs in to a new device.
Therefore, a WiFi network will be essential to recovering the backup from the cloud. However, what is still unclear is whether WhatsApp will start storing conversations on its servers since it will be necessary to forward the same message to several devices.
Anyway, the resource is practically ready. However, we still don’t know when WhatsApp will release the news to all beta channel users.
