WhatsApp confirmed that 4 devices can be linked to one account

WhatsApp has confirmed that support for many devices will enter the public beta in the coming months.

This command allows users to access accounts from up to four linked devices.

The two new functions "Take a look" and "Incognito Mode" have also been officially announced.

Currently, you can only use your account on one device (a mobile phone with a registered number). There is a web version of WhatsApp. However, your phone must be connected to the internet for it to work.

With that in mind, the following multi-device feature is working hard to fix this situation.

The news was released during an interview between WABetaInfo and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp President Will Cascart.

Cathcart declined to confirm reports that WhatsApp is developing an iPad app. However, he said that support for multiple devices enables WhatsApp through the iPad.

New WhatsApp functions:

In addition to supporting multiple devices, Zuckerberg also confirmed that WhatsApp is adding a new one-time viewing feature that allows users to send content that disappears after watching it.

The service has also enhanced the function of hiding messages, which currently allows messages to be deleted after a period of time.

From now on, the new Incognito mode will allow you to enable incognito messages in all threads.

The Facebook CEO stressed that cross-device functionality would not harm the end-to-end encryption that WhatsApp provides for messages sent between individuals.

“Cryptography is always end-to-end,” Zuckerberg wrote. Even if your phone battery runs out, keeping all of your messages and content properly synced between devices is a huge technical challenge. But we have fixed this issue and are looking forward to releasing it soon.

WhatsApp has not yet confirmed when the "Show once" and "Incognito" functions will start working. But Cathcart said multi-device support will enter public testing within the next month or two.

In addition to supporting multiple devices, WABetaInfo also reported that WhatsApp is developing a new password-protected encryption and backup feature that will allow users to transfer their chat history between iOS and Android devices.

WABetaInfo discovered many features before its official release, including adding contacts via QR codes and hiding messages in WhatsApp.
