WhatsApp is in full adjustment of its service to launch one of the most anticipated functions: the possibility of using the same account on several devices at the same time. For it, will offer an open beta It will activate in a future update, although with limitations, as warned by the company.
The second most popular messaging platform on the planet, owned by Facebook, has been working for months on the multi-device function that It will not depend on an Internet connection on the main cell phone -a fundamental requirement to use the current WhatsApp Web service- or when it is off.
The specialized site WABetainfo revealed that the company is preparing access to an open beta on WhatsApp Web, which users can access in a future update to test the multi-device function.
In the first screenshots released by WABetainfo, you can see that the new desktop application -at least in the macOS operating system- that already brings this new feature. It shows how recent conversations are downloaded to your computer so that you have an identical copy on both devices.
It also includes some extra information about the multi-device function, indicating again that WhatsApp can be used on up to four different devices, so that you can use WhatsApp Web on the PC, its native application and the web version.
As it is a feature still under development, in the WhatsApp Web test not all the actions that it will allow will be activated, such as the possibility of mute, archive or delete conversations and messages.
At the moment there is no date on when WhatsApp will activate this beta version although, considering that everything seems quite ready, it could be closer than we imagine.
