The well-known instant messaging app WhatsApp, which is a Meta product, has announced an upcoming update that will allow users to access the same WhatsApp account from various phones. Within the coming weeks, this feature will be available to all users, allowing them to use the same WhatsApp account on up to four devices. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, made the announcement on Facebook and Instagram. “As of today, you can access the same WhatsApp account from up to four different devices,”

he said. Each device will operate independently, and even if the primary device loses network connectivity, the secondary devices will continue to receive messages. If the primary device is inactive for an extended period of time, all companion devices will be automatically logged out of WhatsApp. ”
Connecting phones as companion devices facilitates communications. You can now transition between devices without having to sign out and resume conversations where you left off. Or, if you are the proprietor of a small business, additional employees can now respond to customers directly from their phones using the same WhatsApp Business account,” WhatsApp said in a press release.
You Can Use The Same WhatsApp Account On Four Mobile Devices
WhatsApp is reportedly rolling out a group setting to help group admins administer the approval process for new members. Using this feature, group administrators can determine how new members are approved. WABetaInfo, a website that monitors WhatsApp, reports that once the feature is enabled, new members must be approved by a group administrator before they can join the group, even if they used a group invite link, by reviewing the “Pending Participants” section.
WhatsApp is also developing a new feature for iOS dubbed “channels,” a one-to-many tool for broadcasting information. With the new “channels” feature, users will readily be able to receive useful updates from news sources of their choosing. The feature is still in development on the Android app, but the most recent WhatsApp beta update for iOS 188.8.131.52 reveals that WhatsApp is also working on introducing this feature to the iOS app in the future.
WABetaInfo, reports that WhatsApp intends to rename the Status tab to “Updates” in order to include channels in this section. A WhatsApp channel is a private communication tool where phone numbers and user information are always concealed. However, communications received within a channel are not end-to-end encrypted, as one-to-many makes little sense for channels. Note that channels will have no impact on the end-to-end encryption of private communications, which will remain end-to-end encrypted.
