The ” multi-device ” capacity soon a reality …
All users of WhatsApp know, the app is linked to a specific phone and number. Which means it can only be used properly on this device. How many have we been forced for each different number to have a specific WhatsApp application. Because although there is a “Web” version of the application, it is actually based on the main version.
But according to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp had found the possibility of allowing to have the same application open ” on different devices, without an active internet connection ». Mark Zuckerberg in a chat, via WhatsApp with the portal, explains that it took the engineers of the firm to surpass themselves. But the challenge has been met and soon the network will enter the implementation phase. ” It’s been a big technical challenge to get all of your messages and content to sync properly across all devices, even when your phone’s battery is depleted, but we’ve fixed this issue and can’t wait to release it soon! “Explained the boss of Facebook in this case.
During discussions with WABetaInfo, the bosses of WhatsApp, explained that even then, the security of the conversations would not suffer. While using the app on multiple devices, the messages would always be ” end-to-end encrypted “. And best of all, it will be possible to connect up to 4 devices, and even an Ipad!
