Whatsapp: disappointment for users! Long-awaited feature has huge catches
In the past few days the messenger service came Whatsapp with a whole range of features around the corner that users have long expected. But a special announcement has a big catch …
Whatsapp had announced something that users all over the world had long expected: the messenger service will in future run on four devices at the same time.
Although there is still no point in time when the feature will be accessible to all users, and the beta version is not yet running, the announcement has caused some heart pounding.
Whatsapp: On up to four devices at the same time
So far it has only been possible to run the “Whatsapp-Web” web application on the mobile phone and another device – exactly one – at the same time. That should change. Whatsapp will soon be usable on up to four devices at the same time.

But as it now turned out, this feature is not designed as many would have liked.
Because in the future, Whatsapp will not be available on several smartphones at the same time. This is what the news portal “Techbook” writes.
This is Whatsapp:
- The instant messaging service was founded in 2009 in Santa Clara, USA by Jan Koum and Brian Acton
- In 2014, Facebook Inc. bought Whatsapp for $ 19 billion
- The application is available for Android and Apple users
- You can not only send text and voice messages as well as pictures, but you can also make phone calls
- Whatsapp is repeatedly criticized for its lack of data protection
Because in the future, only one of the four devices will be allowed to be a smartphone. That means: a cell phone, two computers and a tablet are no problem. Using the same WhatsApp account on your private and business mobile phone at the same time remains a dream for the time being. (evo)
