Facebook always seems to be doing its best to make WhatsApp as good as possible. The world’s most popular instant messaging app counts over two billion users, and there’s no sign of slowing down. Upcoming changes from WhatsApp’s early beta access will significantly boost the app’s reliability and efficiency.
A recent rollout is worthy of a lot of attention, as it brings both improved video calls and a dark mode. But the good news is far from over.
The app becomes available for multiple devices at once
Ever wanted to access the same WhatsApp account from multiple devices simultaneously? Have you ever dreamed of making those text messages to your crush more efficient by adding the persuasive skills of more than one person? WhatsApp prepares for its users just that, it will let them access their account on a maximum of four devices at the same time, rather than having to log in on every new device they switch to.
But there’s more great news to come, as messages will sync across all of the user’s devices the app is in use on. This means that there’s no need to worry about missing parts of the conversation as the user transits from his phone, to his tablet, and so on.
However, WhatsApp remains that good ol’ app for smartphones capable of free of charge video calls and instant messages. The Play Store description says it all:
WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.
The new features are under the final phase of testing, but there’s no info yet on when we might see them released.
