You can use WhatsApp on multiple devices at the same time – end-to-end encryption to improve as well


According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp confirms that it is developing cross-platform support for the app, which allows access to a single phone on multiple devices at once.

Currently, the only thing close is a WhatsApp website, which requires you to connect your phone to your computer – if your phone loses its internet connection, WhatsApp website stops receiving messages as well.

This new development comes from the people at WABetaInfo who have been digging around the iOS beta patch. Initially there was a rumor, but they announced on the same day that the development was confirmed.

According to the report, messages will be able to sync across devices because they will be stored on servers – and to enhance security, WhatsApp also improves end-to-end encryption, despite your chats being stored on servers now.

This is not to be confused with chat backups that are stored in Google Drive for Android and iCloud for iOS – chats are essentially that, they restore points for your conversations and can't be officially transferred from one OS to another (you can always use third parties programs to do this).

The beta mentions the update for iOS, but Android will probably get it too. Plus, there is no ETA so far when the feature will be finished and rolled out to devices – but this is good news if WhatsApp and security boost.
