The new feature WhatsApp working on will let you use 4 devices with the same number and sync your chat across
As we reported earlier WhatsApp is working on a feature that will allow you to connect the same number on multiple devices. WhatsApp is now actively working to provide the best services to its users in this pandemic. The company is also going to implement a new feature that will allow users to mute a chat forever. Another amazing feature that WhatsApp is adding will label the fake viral news unappropriate.
According to a new leak by WABetaInfo, it was disclosed that the new multi-device support feature the company is adding will allow you to link a maximum of 4 devices. The option that allows us to use the same account on different devices at the same time is surely one of the most requested features, but surely it’s one of the most complicated to develop.
As WABetaInfo discovered, If a user wants to link its WhatsApp account on a second device, the user needs to copy the chat history. In this scenario, WhatsApp will require a WiFi connection, because it may use a large amount of your data plan.

As noted the company tested the feature with the WhatsApp desktop, but it’s really possible that WhatsApp will allow mobile devices to be connected to your main device later than WhatsApp Desktop. Note that, using this feature, an Internet connection on your device will no longer be needed to use WhatsApp Desktop.
So you will be able to access your account on the second device once the app has copied all your WhatsApp data. Note that any message will be delivered to all your family devices, so your chat history will be always synced across platforms, and when you use or remove a device, your encryption key changes.
When someone adds a new device in his WhatsApp account, you will be notified because encryption keys change.
Available in future for iOS and Android! pic.twitter.com/WqrM6cRHWW
