After being confirmed by none other than Mark Zuckerberg, the long-awaited multi-device support for Whatsapp messenger is now rolling out to selected beta testers on Android. The feature was outlined and detailed in a Facebook engineering team blog with plenty of information surrounding just how it has been achieved. For those with no interest on the inner workings of how messages are relayed between devices, code-digger WABetaInfo has also noted that the multi-device feature is now rolling out in a very limited beta to some lucky users. We already noted that the multi-device support for WhatsApp is limited to just one smartphone – disappointingly this remains the case with the beta. There are some other limitations though with Facebook’s implementation. You won’t be able to view the live location of another device, while calling may be disabled if the version of WhatsApp installed upon one of the four devices linked is outdated. Functionality has also been limited on the Facebook Portal, WhatsApp Web/Desktop, and for those using WhatsApp Business accounts.
