The social networking application company WhatsApp app has started testing a new version of the application
That allows the user to open his account on more than one device at the same time.
According to a post-broadcast on the Facebook social network engineering page that owns WhatsApp
the company intends to start testing the new feature with a limited number of users already participating in its beta program.
Through the beta version of the new version, which launched for the first time last June
the user can run the WhatsApp app application on his phone and then with up to 4 devices connected simultaneously
even if the phone battery has run out.
even if the phone battery has run out. Each device will connect to the user’s WhatsApp account independently
and maintain end-to-end encryption for messaging aimed at ensuring the privacy of conversations.
Facebook said that it has developed new technology to maintain the encryption feature between the endpoints
while ensuring the simultaneous transmission of data such as contact names and the archive of conversations between multiple devices.
It is noteworthy that the WhatsApp application currently depends on the presence of a smartphone as the primary device on which the user’s account is opened
and then the account can be browsed on other devices such as the personal computer
but provided that the account continues to be opened on the smartphone, which must remain in a state of operation and an Internet connection.
Since browsing and using the account on other devices is linked to the presence of the smartphone
the application runs on these devices more slowly and loses connection frequently.
