WhatsApp: soon, the possibility of using an account on multiple devices

According to new rumors, WhatsApp is developing a feature that will allow an account to be used on multiple devices. Currently, the WhatsApp account works like a SIM card and can only be associated with a smartphone (or tablet).
WhatsApp: soon, the possibility of using an account on multiple devices
With over 2 billion users worldwide, WhatsApp is one of the most popular mobile applications. But while WhatsApp has many advantages, there are also some disadvantages, such as not being able to use the same account on multiple devices.

The good news is that WhatsApp is obviously already looking for a solution to allow users to use one account on multiple devices at the same time. While for most people this is not useful, such a feature could be very handy for those who have two smartphones, or for those who want to use the same WhatsApp account on both a smartphone and a tablet at the same time.

WhatsApp hasn't discussed functionality development yet. However, according to an article in WABetaInfo, which is relayed by our colleagues at Android Central, the latest beta of the WhatsApp application would include hints about this new feature. In addition, this could be a priority for WhatsApp engineers as changes would be frequent in the beta. In the latest release, WABetaInfo would even have been able to enable a feature that informs the caller when changing devices, since this causes the encryption key to change.

However, as this is not official information for the moment, it should be treated with extreme caution. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the development of this new feature will result in a stable release.

WhatsApp: a series of new features under development

It seems that WhatsApp has been working on a series of new features to improve its messaging service lately. For example, four weeks ago, we relayed a rumor that WhatsApp is also developing a feature that will encrypt backups created from the Android application and saved on Google Drive. This is because while messages between WhatsApp users are encrypted from end to end, the encryption does not apply to backups.
Other rumours suggest that another feature is being developed that would allow ephemeral messages to be sent. As on Snapchat, these ephemeral messages could disappear after an hour, a week, a month, or a year.
