One Whatsapp Account for everyone
Facebook’s popular chat application, WhatsApp, is allegedly going to get a big change in the near future. There are indications that one WhatsApp account can be used on many other devices simultaneously (multi-platform).
Rumors regarding WhatsApp’s plan were confirmed by the frequent feature leaker of the popular conversation application, WABetaInfo, through its Twitter account.
Current Limitations for One WhatsApp Account
So far, one WhatsApp account can only be activated on one smartphone and one additional device such as a PC. If you try to activate the account on another device besides that, a warning will appear that there is still a cellphone or PC that is actively using the associated account.
If you choose to use the WhatsApp account on a new device, the WhatsApp account on the previous device will log out and cannot be used again to send or receive messages on that device.
If the aforementioned info from WABetaInfo is correct, then in the future one WhatsApp account will be able to be used on many devices simultaneously without the need to log out from the previous device. Reportedly a multi-platform feature will be present in the WhatsApp update version 2.19.80, as summarized by KompasTekno from The Independent, Monday (5/8/2019).
