WhatsApp has released multi-device support for selected users over the past few months. During the initial stages of release, beta testers are allowed to join the multi-device beta to use WhatsApp on up to four connected devices and one phone at a time. However, WhatsApp may not allow this feature to continue to opt-in now, the messaging app reportedly removed the login feature and automatically allowed more devices for beta testers.
According to Wabetainfo, a website that tracks all the development of WhatsApp has noticed that the messaging app now removes the beta option for most devices and some beta testers (who have not joined the beta) can use the multi-device without joining. WhatsApp has not released a stable version of this feature, but it has automatically provided the feature to some beta testers.
“Option to exit multi-device beta system has been removed. As you can see from this screenshot, the “Multi-device beta” line has disappeared: this means that those users will no longer be able to leave the multi-device beta program. -WhatsApp, this update has removed all your connected devices, so you can reconnect them using multiple devices, which are automatically enabled for your WhatsApp account, “said a Wabetainfo report.
WhatsApp will make an official announcement before releasing the multi-device feature to non-beta users.
WhatsApp will also allow users to connect devices without the need for a primary smartphone to be online. This is the login feature labeled “Beta” in the Devices Devices option in the Settings menu on WhatsApp. If you enable this option, you will be disconnected from all devices. After the new connection, you will be able to use it as before. Things will be a little different on this as you would not need your smartphone to sign in. You will not need to keep the phone close to your laptop and make sure it is online before using WhatsApp Web. Connected devices will be able to receive and send messages up to 14 days if you do not log out.
One of the major limitations WhatsApp users have been dealing with is the support of multiple devices. WhatsApp has both a version of the web and apps that can be downloaded for Windows and macOS, but the way it works right now, those connect directly to your main device and rely on it to be online for it to work properly. Proper support for many WhatsApp devices has long been in operation, with a public beta that allows certain people to try it out before a stable release. If you do not want to mess with the beta, we have some good news, as we seem to be approaching a stable release.
WhatsApp beta 184.108.40.206 uses a small but significant change, as revealed by WABetaInfo: the first version to force users on multiple devices. At the very least, this is what some users are experiencing, as the service still limits who can join the beta of multiple devices in the first place.
Once the update is installed on your phone, the app will remove your existing devices from WhatsApp Web and WhatsApp Desktop, and ask you to reconnect them using the new multi-device mode, which will allow you to use WhatsApp on any computer no matter where you are. whether your main phone is really online or not.
Additionally, users who receive this no longer have the option to leave the beta for most devices. If you are already subscribed to it, there is a chance that you will not be able to leave it anyway, even if you are a stable version of WhatsApp. I checked my WhatsApp settings (using stability) and found that the beta drop button was missing from my app.
A stable version of WhatsApp has not yet forced this change for users – at least, they will get information asking if they want to enable the beta of most personal devices.
If you have not yet found many devices on your device and your phone has no display option to enable it, see if updating to the latest WhatsApp beta will be tricky, or download the APK to your device.
