Multi-device WhatsApp without a connected smartphone arrives for everyone

After months of the feature being available to a few testers of the app’s beta, the multi-device without smartphone connected WhatsApp comes for everyone.

We are still a long way from seeing the function multi-device 2.0 (which we talked about in this article) which allows you to connect a second mobile device to your account of the popular messaging app.

Multi-device WhatsApp comes out of beta

It’s been several months since Whatsapp introduced the function multi-device, initially offered with early access by joining a specific beta program. Now the feature is reaching more and more users.

At the moment, nothing changes: it is always possible to use WhatsApp on a maximum of four desktop devices connected at the same time, too without the smartphone being connected to the internet.

The development team of Whatsapp is aware that its multi-device mode lacks some features (compared to the smartphone app), such as the ability to generate link previews, broadcast messages, the ability to chat with your phone number and more; however, the developers are working hard to bring these features into the next feature updates.

Whatsapp also announced an upcoming feature update multi-device for WhatsApp Web e WhatsApp Desktopin order to make corrections and improvements to the functionality: the development work aims to try to improve the access process (when there is database synchronization), especially when there are several messages to download.

The changes, he says Whatsappwill reach all users iOS by the end of March and all Android users in April, underlining the effort to ensure the best possible security thanks to end-to-end encryption even in the multi-device.
