Everyone who has the latest version of WhatsApp can use the new function, which is still in beta.
According to MacRumors, FacebookMeta-owned WhatsApp is now rolling out a new multi-device feature that will allow users to link their accounts to up to four additional devices, including WhatsApp for web, and send and receive messages even if their primary smartphone is not connected to the internet.
Everyone who has the latest version of WhatsApp can use the new function, which is still in beta. To use the multi-device feature, open WhatsApp, go to Settings, press on Linked Devices, and you’ll find a new option called ‘Multi-Device Beta.’
It’s important to note that once you join WhatsApp Beta, you’ll be disconnected from all of your devices and will have to reconnect. Once connected, the functionality will function normally, with the difference that you will be able to send and receive messages regardless of whether your primary smartphone is connected to the internet. Messages on a linked device cannot be removed. For the time being, the feature is only available on the primary WhatsApp phone.
You can’t contact or call anyone who has an older version of WhatsApp on their phone from the connected devices, and you can only have one primary phone connected to your WhatsApp account at a time.
Active access to your primary device is also required. If you don’t use the primary WhatsApp-connected device for 14 days, all linked devices will be unlinked automatically.
