WhatsApp is preparing to add multi-device support for iPads and Android tablets, expanding its multi-device support beta which began rolling out to selected users last month. The multi-device support means it is possible to use WhatsApp on multiple devices at the same time.

Users can have the same WhatsApp account and operate it on up to four non-mobile devices. This means you cannot use the same WhatsApp account on more than one phone, but you will be able to use the same WhatsApp account on Web Web, Desktop, and Portal at the same time. The company is now preparing to add support for iPad and Android tablets.

This upcoming feature was identified by WABetaInfo. Previously, the only way to access WhatsApp on your PC was to have your phone connected to the internet all the time, after being connected by scanning a QR code. This means that if you turn off mobile data or run out of battery, you will lose access to WhatsApp on the PC.

Multi-device functionality that your compatible device will connect to your WhatsApp account independently. The company claims to have developed a new system to ensure end-to-end encryption while syncing conversations, contact names, chat archives, starred messages, and all other information across devices.

Companion devices connected by scanning QR codes, and on compatible devices, WhatsApp will also enforce biometric authentication as an additional layer of security. Users can see all of their compatible devices paired with an app, and they can also see when they last used it. They can go a long way, too. For more details, check out WhatsApp’s FAQ page for the feature of multiple devices.

Given that Android tablets are not too far away from Android smartphones, it is possible that the company may be slow to launch multi-device support for most phones. There is currently no way to access multiple smartphones simultaneously via WhatsApp, or it may be on its way in the future.

WhatsApp new community feature

WhatsApp is developing a new feature called AI profile photos to enhance profile images. This new feature has been spotted with the WhatsApp latest beta update (version 2.24.11.17) available on the Google Play Store.

With this new feature, WhatsApp users will be able to create unique and personalized profile photos using AI. Instead of sharing real photos, users can describe the kind of image they want. The AI then creates a custom profile photo based on that description.

Through this feature, WhatsApp aims to enhance privacy by allowing users to avoid sharing personal pictures, reducing the risk of misuse or unauthorized sharing.

This is also beneficial when users are unsure which photo to use, they can simply provide details, and the AI will create a personalized image. No need to spend time searching for the perfect picture.

WhatsApp AI Profile Photos

AI Profile Photos feature is currently under development and will be available in a future update. Previously, WhatsApp introduced a feature to create and share AI stickers. Users will soon be able to create AI-generated photos for their profile.

WhatsApp is preparing a new feature that focuses on user privacy and interaction. The upcoming feature allows users to privately mention or tag contacts within their status updates, ensuring that only the mentioned individuals receive notifications.

The private status tagging feature is currently under development and spotted in the latest WhatsApp beta update (v2.24.11.15) available through the Google Play Beta Program.

The feature is set to be released in a future update, and further details will be provided as they become available. Previously, this feature was announced with WhatsApp Beta for Android v2.24.9.16.
