What was an exciting rumour just days ago, is now all but 'confirmed'. According to reliable WhatsApp feature tracker and blog WABetaInfo, the chat service will soon let users employ a single account across multiple devices.
Yes, this means a single account across multiple devices simultaneously.
At present, the chat service only allows a single account on a single device. If you wish to use that same account on another phone, you’ll be prompted to log out of the first device.
This means using one WhatsApp account, mated to one phone number, used across more than one device
And if you’re wondering how it would all work, you’d still be able to use your cellphone number as your login. Additionally, WABetaInfo believes that the chat service will not store info on its servers, opting for users phones instead.
“WhatsApp is working to get the verification code in-app, for the second phone. Probably to be ready when they will release the new multi platform system,” it added in a subsequent tweet.
There’s no estimated launch date for the new multi-device login system, but the tracker believes the feature should arrive alongside “the new multi-platform system” which will include a version of WhatsApp for iPadOS as well.
