WhatsApp to soon allow same account use on multiple devices simultaneously: Report

The support will be extended to Windows, iOS, iPadOS and Android.

WhatsApp users will soon be able to use the same account on multiple devices simultaneously, WABetaInfo, which tracks Whatsapp features before they are released to the general public, has confirmed. In a tweet, the tracker says that this support will be extended to WhatsApp for Windows/Universal Windows Platform (UWP) when available, iOS, iPadOS when available and Android. So users can now use WhatsApp on their PCs if their phones have no connection.

Last week, the same platform “launched a rumour” suggesting that the multi-platform system will be supported on iOS. It said that the 1) same WhatsApp account can be used on an iPad (when the app will be available) without uninstalling it from an iPhone, 2) the same WhatsApp account also on iOS and Android devices (or on devices having the same OS), and 3) WhatsApp on your computer (without the necessity for an Internet connection on your phone) using the UWP app.

The news is in line with a recent report, according to which, WhatsApp could soon have a web version that works without a smartphone. WhatsApp is said to be working on a way for users to use the instant messaging app on their desktop browsers without the need for a smartphone. Currently, if you need to run WhatsApp on the desktop, you need to have an active account on smartphone and are required to log on by scanning a QR code on phones.

WhatsApp has been undergoing a hard time when it comes to Whatsapp payment support in India. WhatsApp’s payment feature went live last year for a limited few users. The platform allowed users to send and receive money from other users, using the UPI platform, who also had the feature activated. The feature, however, remained in beta with pending regulatory approvals. Media reported that the authorities are concerned that WhatsApp might share user’s payment information with its parent company Facebook and subsidiary Instagram -- company’s other subsidiaries.
