COTEKNO.COM – WhatsApp had confirmed that it would bring the multi-device feature. Which later one WhatsApp account will be able to be used on four devices at once.
According to the latest information, this multi-device feature will be launched by WhatsApp in a new update in the coming months.
This was confirmed directly by the Head of WhatsApp Will Cathcart and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with the popular leaker WhatsApp, WABetaInfo, quoted from The Verge, Sunday (6/6/2021).
Cathcart confirmed, WhatsApp will support multi-device with four devices at once, but did not provide clarity whether the application can already be used on Apple iPad devices.
Mark Zuckerberg said that this multi-device feature will not affect the end-to-end encryption that WhatsApp offers for messages sent between users. Ensure that the message sent will be protected by the encryption.
“It’s a huge challenge to connect all your messages and content across devices, even when the phone’s battery is dead. But we’ve cracked it and we hope to release it soon!” kata Mark Zuckerberg.
In addition to multi-device, Zuckerberg also confirmed that the application will come with a view once feature.
This new feature of WhatsApp allows messages that are sent to disappear immediately after being read.
In addition, this feature is a continuation of the disappearing mode, where messages can be deleted if set within a certain period of time.
Along with that, WABetaInfo also reports the app is working on a password-protected encrypted chat backup feature.
This feature allows users to transfer their chat history between iOS and Android devices.
We’ll just have to wait until the new update officially opens a WhatsApp account for use on multiple devices later. (Voice.com/ Dicky Prastya)
