WhatsApp Web, Desktop Get New UI For Multi-Device Support

The latest WhatsApp beta update brings a new UI for multi-device support on the messaging platform's web and desktop clients.

WhatsApp is as of now working with multi-device support that will allow you to use one account on various devices at the same time. This feature is currently limited only to WhatsApp Web and its work desktop application. Multi-Device support for WhatsApp is in beta, and a new update brings the feature closer to launch.

The most recent WhatsApp beta update Android brings a new UI for WhatsApp Web and desktop. The new UI is for multi-device support and it shows “Connected Devices” to your WhatsApp account, WABetaInfo reported. As the name suggested, this layout shows the devices where your WhatsApp account is at currently being used. You can also the last active time for each connected device. It will also allow you to link another device to your WhatsApp account, and log out from the connected device.

WABetaInfo takes note of that this new UI should begin appearing to WhatsApp beta users. It’s a partial rollout so not all beta users will get it. Also, this is just a UI update and not really the multi-device support. WhatsApp is as yet working with this, and there’s no word on its release date so far. WhatsApp is expected to allow up to four devices for one account with this feature.

As of now, WhatsApp can be used only on its web and desktop applications. This also requires the primary devices (Phone) to have active internet connection and maintain close distance with the PC. Multi-Device support is said to allow independent usage on each connected device.
