WhatsApp Will Lift The Ban On Logging In From Multiple Smartphones

WhatsApp Will Lift The Ban On Logging In From Multiple Smartphones

In the near future, the WhatsApp account can be used simultaneously on several smartphones and computers; this became known from the analysis of the next beta version of the messenger for Android, conducted by the publication WABetaInfo.

Currently, when you log in to the same WhatsApp account on a second smartphone, access to the service on the first one automatically stops, meaning that you can't use a Facebook-owned messenger on two smartphones at the same time.

Currently, the function itself is not working in beta yet, but the interface for it is already ready — the "linked devices" section has appeared in the settings (see The image above). Currently, it may display a computer that is logged in to the browser or desktop version of WhatsApp. According to the publication, one account can be used simultaneously on a maximum of four devices.

The section has a button "Connect a new device" - Link new device, which allows you to correspond and call WhatsApp from a second smartphone, computer, or home video device Facebook Portal. In the same section, all connected devices will be displayed with an indication of the exact time when the messenger was last used on them — so you can make sure that hackers did not connect to your account.

Also, in the new beta version, WhatsApp developers continued to improve the advanced search interface. It allows you to search for messages more flexibly, specifying what type of content they should contain-links, videos, gifs, photos, sound, or documents. The feature is under development and will be available in the future.
