WhatsApp multi-device support for iOS users arrives via beta program
WhatsApp users on iPhone can now avail multiple-device support function, which was earlier limited only to the Android smartphone users.
The multiple-device support function enables user to connect up to four devices without the necessity of the primary device, the smartphone itself.
However, according to WABetaInfo the multi-device feature will only be available through a beta programme for some beta testers of the app.
Users can verify if multi-device is enabled for your WhatsApp account by following the steps
Open WhatsApp Settings >Linked Devices (previously called “WhatsApp Web/Desktop”) > a new row called multi-device.
Recently, the company rolled out a new feature where the users can join a group video or voice call even after it started, and you see the participants in a video call screen the way you see on various communication apps.
WhatsApp said that the ‘Joinable calls’ reduce the burden of answering a group call as it starts, and brings the spontaneity and ease of in-person conversations to a group calling on WhatsApp.
If someone in your group misses a call when the phone rings, they can still join whenever they like. You can also drop off and re-join so long as the call is still ongoing.
The group calling on WhatsApp currently allows up to eight participants to video call with each other.
