People can now switch between two phones without signing out, using one WA account, and picking up chat where they left off. This interface of WA sounds more helpful for small business running entities, where they get orders through WA and need to respond to customers there.
Now, small businesses can directly reply to their clients and employees from one account simultaneously.
How many devices can link at one time?
This feature was highly requested by users and now you can link your phone as one of up to four additional devices.
WhatsApp’s Linked Devices feature allows you to link up to four different devices to the same WhatsApp account each device syncs independently with the WA server and all messages, media, and calls are also end-to-end encrypted on secondary devices. This feature is helpful for normal WA users as well as the business user.
When will it activate for All users?
WhatsApp has not yet announced when it plans to roll out the WA multi-device capability to the wider public.
However, according to a report by 91mobiles, any new feature in WA Beta generally takes a few weeks to roll out to the public. So, we can expect the WA multi-device capability to roll out to the public as early as August.
