WhatsApp multi-device support is expected to support up to 4 devices.
The feature is in its final stages of testing before being rolled out to WhatsApp beta.
There is no final release date for the feature.
WhatsApp multi-device support has been in the news for months now and it looks like WhatsApp will finally roll out the feature to beta users soon. The new information comes from WABetaInfo suggesting that the multiple device feature could be available for beta version users soon.
The feature will let users access their WhatsApp account on up to 4 devices, without the need for the primary phone to be connected to the internet. As of now, users can use WhatsApp on their PC or Mac via the app or browser, but the primary smartphone with the WhatsApp account needs to be connected to the internet.
WABetaInfo has also shared a screenshot of the Multi-device feature. It looks like the feature will be listed under linked devices and there will be a toggle to enable multi-devices. Another feature is the ability to have different wallpapers for your chats on each device.
