Last month, WhatsApp started rolling out multi-device support for its select beta users. The multi-device support is currently rolling out for iPhone and Android (mobile) WhatsApp beta users. Multi-Device support allows the users to use WhatsApp on multiple devices simultaneously. It can now run on four devices apart from your Android or iOS smartphone. Earlier, you could only use it with a single device apart from your phone. WhatsApp had allowed multi-device support on WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, and Portal. However, you still can’t use WhatsApp simultaneously on another smartphone.

WhatsApp on iPad and Android tablets!
But now, WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp is planning to add support for iPads and Android tablets. WABetaInfo is a portal that tracks the latest updates on WhatsApp. Back in June, Mark Zuckerberg hinted about WhatsApp on iPad. The new feature is in development and will be rolled out with future updates. Furthermore, WhatsApp will bring support for iPad with a native app and not as a web app. The beta version users on iPhone will be able to use the beta version of the iPad whenever it launches. With the new multi-device support, you can now use voice and video calls apart from text messages on the linked device.

Earlier, when you connect to your PC, your connection would lose if your smartphone runs out of battery or isn’t connected to the internet. But with the new multi-device 2.0 support, you don’t need to worry about your smartphone’s internet or battery backup. They have made the second device work as an independent. WhatsApp via an article confirms that they are not sacrificing the end-to-end encryption for multi-device support. That means that your messages, contact names, media, and calls will be end-to-end encrypted. WhatsApp also added biometric authentication before scanning QR codes as an extra security layer. We hope WhatsApp will add support for a second smartphone with multi-device support 2.0 in the future. Because it will be helpful for people with two or more smartphones.
