WhatsApp’s proprietary messaging platform WhatsApp’s service requires a mobile phone connection to be used on the web or any other device. This time the messaging platform company wants to move away from this issue.
It is known that they will allow users to use WhatsApp on multiple devices without any phone.
WhatsApp recently announced that it is launching public beta testing of a limited range of advanced multiple device capabilities. As a result of this update, users will be able to use WhatsApp on four non-phone devices for the first time.
According to a blog post from WhatsApp, each device will be independently connected to WhatsApp. Currently, the total number of WhatsApp users in the world is more than two hundred million. The company has been providing end-to-end encryption services to users for a long time.
Encryption / decryption of his identity and message is done through the phone of a WhatsApp user. Although initially limited to testing, the WhatsApp team continues to work to bring better performance and add more features in the future.
Will Cathcart, head of the company, and Mark Zuckerberg, head of Facebook, spoke in an interview about the challenge of maintaining end-to-end encryption.
In a recent blog post, Cathcart also highlighted what needs to be done to maintain security.
