In the last month or so, the popular messaging platform WhatsApp has been launching a wide range of updates both for its iOS and Android platforms. Recently, in yet another update, the platform announced that it will soon roll out a new feature that will allow users to use the app on multiple devices without having an internet connection.
As per a report by the WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is currently working on the latest multi-device feature but the company is expecting to release it within the next couple of months for both Android and iOS beta testers. According to the same source, CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg and head of WhatsApp at Facebook Will Cathcart confirmed that the multi-device will be launched in a couple of months. However, in order to make the latest feature perfect, it will take a long time.
