WhatsApp testing to expand multi-device to secondary android, iOS devices.

WhatsApp is working on expanding its multi-device feature to let users access the instant messaging app on multiple devices based on Android and iOS. The feature works in beta as designed for WhatsApp on the Web, desktop and Facebook Portal. it allows users to access WhatsApp on secondary devices even when their phones don't have active Internet access.

WhatsApp may initially look for Android tablets and iPad as the next potential devices for expanding multi- device support. However, we see mobile devices based on Android and iOS getting its access to let you use a single WhatsApp account on multiple phones.

Base on the report by WhatsApp features tracker WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is currently testing an update to its existing multi-device feature ( multi-device 2.0 ) to bring it for Android and iOS devices.

WABetalnfo reports that the secondary mobile device would be able to download all existing messages from the server when a user would open WhatsApp on that device for the first time. The entire chat history appears to be end-to-end encrypted.
