If you follow WABetaInfo since a long time, you know that WhatsApp is working on a feature that allows to use the same WhatsApp account on different devices at the same time: this feature is called multi device.
WhatsApp is developing two different kinds of multi device:
- Multi device with WhatsApp Web: you can use WhatsApp Web without your main phone to be connected to the Internet.
- Multi device with other devices: you can connect up to 4 different devices to your main WhatsApp account. Note that this limit might change in future and this type doesn’t require an active Internet connection on the main phone as well.
Today, thanks to the 188.8.131.52 beta update, we want to publish our demo video that shows how to log out from a WhatsApp account from a linked device.
As you can see in this demo video, there will be a new option called Log out, that allows to unlink your device to the main WhatsApp account. At the moment the Log out option replaces Delete account on linked devices but their plans might change, moving/copying the option in the previous Linked devices section. Only time will tell.
According to our tests, the feature works without issues on both WhatsApp Messenger and Business versions, and it will be obviously available on WhatsApp for Android too. We want to remember that multi device completely changes your WhatsApp experience, so WhatsApp is really developing it carefully and there is no date available for the release.
For more news about multi device stay tuned here!
