WEB DESK: WhatsApp, a worldwide popular messaging app, has started working on a new feature that will allow users to send messages without using a mobile phone.
According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), WhatsApp is working on a support feature that allows an account on its platform to be used on more than one device at a time. Under the new feature, users will be able to link up to four devices from their WhatsApp account and send messages even when the mobile phone’s battery is dead.
Currently WhatsApp users need to connect to desktop and web apps from mobile phones and receive messages. But under the new feature of WhatsApp, in the coming days, users will be able to send and receive messages even if the battery of the mobile phone is dead.
WhatsApp says that under Multi Device Support, users will be able to link 4 devices simultaneously from their WhatsApp account, namely WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, Tablet and Facebook Portal.
According to WhatsApp, the new feature will initially be introduced to a limited group of users. As its performance improves, it will be introduced to all users.
Keep in mind that many other messaging apps, including WhatsApp’s rival Signal, already have this special feature that requires a phone to sign up, but not to exchange messages.
