Every day they are sent million messages The company has not stopped launching new tools with the intent of users getting the functionality they need. In this sense, one of the most popular requests was the possibility of obtaining Same account on multiple devicesoption that has not yet come.
Remember that it is currently only possible to associate a WhatsApp account with a cell phone number, and the only option to see it on another device is to enable the web version. But it cannot be obtained as an app on another smartphone. Also, if the phone battery or internet access runs out, the chats cannot be accessed. Fortunately, this may be about to change.
WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart confirmed to WABetaInfo that the company is working on a feature that will allow multiple devices to be linked to a single account. As he said, it will be possible to sync the account on up to four devices.
However, the platform noted that it’s pretty cool technical challenge Synchronize all messages and content on different computers, but they expect to launch the option in about a couple of months.

They were surprised at the portal that the CEO of WhatsApp called them to discuss some of the following functions that will come to the application. The CEO appreciated the work of the site, which was designed with the goal of making it easier for users to understand and learn about new features of the app, as only people who know the code can access that information.
WABetaInfo turned five years old in January and became a reference in terms of WhatsApp, so much so that the call they made with the company joined Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook who was responsible for confirming the aforementioned characteristics.
