WhatsApp Starts Rolling Out Multi-Device Beta to iOS

WhatsApp has been working on its multi-device feature for quite a while now. If you are on the latest beta build of WhatsApp on an iOS device you can now access the multi-device option (Source: XDA). Users can link up to 4 devices which include a Windows/macOS machine, a Facebook portal or any device with WhatsApp web.

Up until now, if you wanted to use WhatsApp on a secondary device you had to log in through WhatsApp Web and have to be connected to the internet on your phone the whole time you want to make use of the messaging platform. But things are going to change when this update goes live on stable builds of the application.

Users running on the beta build 2.21.180.14 of WhatsApp can find the above screens in the applications “Settings” section. You need to go into the “Linked Devices” section and you will find the multi-device beta section present there. It works in a similar way to WhatsApp web. You need to scan a QR code and once you do, you can use the messaging client without being connected to the internet on your smartphone.

WhatsApp does warn you about certain features not working. Being a beta build it is understood that as the build is under progress it will have bugs and glitches. You use the beta build and report bugs and glitches you notice.

With all that being said, WhatsApp had to push out this feature as Telegram, one of its competitor messaging platforms, has had this feature for a very long time now.

Have you been waiting for WhatsApp to release this feature or have you already shifted to any other alternative platforms? Do let us know how your experience is if you are using the iOS beta build.
