WhatsApp has rolled out the multi-device support feature for its users and it is likely to be launched for all users soon. Users are eagerly waiting for this feature, but many users are also worried about what will happen to WhatsApp Web after the arrival of multi-device support? Will the company stop this service? A WhatsApp spokesperson has answered these questions while discussing.
Talking about WhatsApp Web, users have to scan the QR code to access WhatsApp Web or Windows and MacOS apps. Thereafter, the mobile in which the app is installed should always be connected to the internet. New SMS can be received on desktop or computer only when there is internet. If the main device does not have internet, the message will not be received on the desktop. But this has changed in the new multi-device feature of WhatsApp. This feature allows users to use WhatsApp on other devices even when the main device is not connected to the Internet.
In the same multi-device feature of WhatsApp, up to four devices can be connected with the primary device. In such a situation, the question is what will happen to WhatsApp Web after this feature is rolled out to all users. Replying to this query, a WhatsApp spokesperson said that WhatsApp Web continues to be an important platform for our users. Till now, WhatsApp was available on only one device at a time. Desktop and web portal used to work by mirroring your mobile, that means you can use WhatsApp on desktop only after your mobile is on and internet is active.
