WhatsApp has been long-rumored to be working on multi-device support. While it did not release the feature in 2020 as predicted, it might release the feature in the first half of 2021. The feature as the name suggests allows users to log in to a single account from four different devices. This means that you can log in from your iPad and iPhone at the same time. As of now, users can only log in to WhatsApp web and phone at the same time.
The Wabetainfo report revealed that WhatsApp is testing calls when the multi-device support is configured. The WhatsApp features tracker said, "WhatsApp is currently testing calls when the multi-device is configured for the same account between different devices since the last week.No release date available."
Apart from this, some iOS-specific features were also spotted during the beta tests. As per Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that would let users join a call or missed call at any given point in time. "We have talked about the possibility to join missed calls in a previous article about WhatsApp for Android. Today WhatsApp is working on the feature for iOS too," the report said.
Another iOS exclusive feature was spotted that would allow users to paste multiple items in the app. The feature has been spotted in the new WhatsApp beta for iOS 188.8.131.52. "WhatsApp beta for iOS 184.108.40.206 is the first beta dedicated to the new year.This update brings the possibility to paste multiple images and videos into WhatsApp.To discover how to use the feature, select multiple images from the Photos app, tap "Export" and now "Copy": if you open WhatsApp, and you paste the content in the chat bar, all images will be captured from WhatsApp, ready to be sent," the Wabetainfo report stated.
Earlier, WhatsApp was found testing the video and voice call feature for its web version. The group and video calling feature are not available to the web version for now but the new icons have appeared during one of the beta tests.
