You use WhatsApp, I use WhatsApp. Although many people today transfer to the telegram signal due to years of habit or work related needs, I believe that in the end they cannot do without this communication software. However, many parts of WhatsApp are not perfect. For example, you can’t use the same phone number on multiple phones at the same time as Telegram, even if you use the web version on your computer you need to keep your phone connected to the Internet nearby. Online, you can continue to use WhatsApp on your computer. However, today’s moderator has found that WhatsApp has added a new feature to the beta version, which allows you to continue using the computer version even when your phone is turned off. This is a new development.
Now, I got bored and opened WhatsApp on my mobile phone and suddenly a notification appeared asking you to “try out new features”. What is this new feature about? As you can see from the small print, this is a “multi-device” feature, which means you can use WhatsApp on up to 4 devices at once without having to maintain the phone’s network connection.
At first I thought the text could mean the same number on multiple mobile phones, but after the moderator tested it, it turned out not to be, but I can say that it was designed for computer users. For example, you have desktop computers in your home and a MacBook Air from the street. Even if you do not have your phone or your phone does not have power, you can connect to these computers if you need to. It may be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing.
Disguised, if you go out on the street and forget to log in from your computer, people around you will always see the content you are talking about with your wife, so you will feel “monitored”. So, if you use this function, everyone really needs to remember to log out even if you leave the computer and you are at home!
The actual test of the moderator is:
A As soon as I opened WhatsApp, I found a prompt asking you to try out new features.
A In Settings-> Connected Devices, you will see a “multi-device beta version” which is not added by default.
Click to see the rules and usage restrictions for the multi-device beta version. For example, it can be used on 4 devices and 1 mobile phone at a time, and it is not possible to send messages or make calls to the web version or the desktop version of the portal version. Those who use the outdated version of WhatsApp on the phone. If there is no problem, you can click “Add to Beta” and exit the beta at any time.
You will be prompted to scan the QR code to reconnect to the paired device and press Continue.
Since then, the multi-device test version has been successfully added.
As you can see in the picture above, the phone turned on Airplane mode and turned off WiFi, but the computer version can still be used normally.
Can I log in with the web version on other mobile phones / iPods?
You may ask if I use an iPod or other mobile phone to log in to the web version, is that possible? The answer is yes, but note that even if you use iPod Safari to open the web version, the notification will not work. In disguise, if you use the LTE / 5G version of the iPad, you do not always drive Safari, and others will post that WhatsApp gives you, you may not be able to accept it.
Similarly, the moderator has tried to use the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and successfully open the computer version of WhatsApp using Google Chrome and log in successfully, but the notification still does not pop up when there is a message.
Mac You can simultaneously use the web version of WhatsApp on MacBook Air, iPod Mini 5, and Android phones, but not notified when messages are received. Even though I use some third party apps related to WhatsApp on my Android phone, I don’t seem to get notifications.
