The popular messaging app WhatsApp has long been working on a multi-device support feature. A few days ago, the company released this feature in the beta version of its Android app. There was no update for iPhone users until then. However, now there is good news for Apple iPhone users as well. According to a report by WABetaInfo, WhatsApp brought out multi-device support for the beta version of the iOS app.
What is a multi-device feature
This feature is special because it enables users to run WhatsApp accounts on four devices simultaneously. Not only that, you don’t even need to enable your primary device to do this. For example, if you are running a WhatsApp account on your laptop and smartphone, WhatsApp will continue to operate on your laptop, even if the smartphone is off or there is no internet on it.

We also note that not all iOS beta users currently have multi-device support. Only selected users can use it. By following the steps below, you can know whether it is currently available on your iPhone or not.
