WhatsApp is, without doubt, one of the most popular messaging platforms all across the globe and with increased competition, the Facebook-owned company keeps on releasing new features so as to improve the user experience – so as to maintain and remain the market leader.
The company has actively been releasing new features and most of these are indeed what users demand or ask for. After the addition of dark mode last year, the app has also gone on to receive support for disappearing messages.
And now, WhatsApp happens to be in the process of testing a new feature that will actually enable using the platform on multiple devices with the same account. This multi-device feature goes on to support a single account on up to four devices. Indeed the brand has already started the process of testing this particular feature.

Talking about this multi-device support, a WhatsApp spokesperson said ” users will have the same functionality that is available on the current public versions of WhatsApp web, desktop, and portal, just without the need to have your phone connected. Our multi-device capability immediately makes the experience better for people who use desktop/web and portal. And it also will make it possible to add support for more kinds of devices over time.”
Indeed it is also working on a feature that will actually keep archived chats archived even after a new message is received. There are in fact reports circulating that the firm could end up renaming the chat archive feature to Read Later and also bring about some more features onboard.
The company is also working on a specific feature that will allow for private conversations between two users by actually offering an option to send a message or media that will automatically get deleted or would disappear once viewed.
