Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Facebook, revealed on Tuesday that WhatsApp is finally enabling the feature that allows users to log in from multiple phones.
Taking to Facebook, Zuckerberg announced: “Starting today, you can log into the same WhatsApp account on up to four phones.”
Previously, WhatsApp users have only been able to use one WhatsApp account on one phone.
However, the new development allows users to connect up to four devices to their main phone at once, which allows them to connect to other devices like companion phones, Android tablets, and WhatsApp on the web.
The new feature, which will enable users’ messages to be synced across devices, including other phones, will reportedly be made available to all users within the next few weeks, according to WhatsApp.
Users will therefore be able to access the app on other devices even if one device is off.
WhatsApp, with more than 2 billion users, is one of the biggest messaging services.
