WhatsApp has rolled out the Multi-Device Support feature for its beta users, and soon it can be offered to all users. People 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 spokesperson for WhatsApp has answered these questions while talking to Tech Radar.
Talking about WhatsApp Web, users must scan the QR code to access WhatsApp Web or Windows and macOS apps. After this, the phone 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 the internet. If the primary device does not have internet, the message will not be accepted 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 primary device is not connected to the Internet.
What will happen to WhatsApp Web?
In the multi-device feature of WhatsApp, up to four devices can be connected with the primary device. In such a situation, the question will happen to WhatsApp Web after this feature is rolled out for all users. Responding to this question, a WhatsApp spokesperson told Techradar that WhatsApp Web remains an essential platform for our users. Until now, WhatsApp was only available on one device at a time. Desktop and web portals used to work by mirroring your phone, which means that you can use WhatsApp on desktop only after your phone is turned on and the internet is active.
The devices on which WhatsApp will work in the new update of WhatsApp include WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop or Facebook Portal. Apart from this, the WhatsApp web and desktop apps will continue to work as before or better than that. This means that you will continue to enjoy this service as comfortably as before.
