The periodic drops in services like WhatsApp make users look favorably on other powerful messaging platforms like Telegram. The benefits of this app compared to that of Zuckerberg are very remarkable. However, billions of users use WhatsApp as the first messaging application. The objective of this app is to improve as much as possible in the shortest possible time. In one of the last betas a new option called “Paired Devices” which enables use the WhatsApp account simultaneously on several devices at the same time, without depending on the connection of your main phone.
Forget about having the phone next to you to use WhatsApp Web
Currently, WhatsApp Web is the version of the messaging app in computer operating systems. However, the application has a limitation. To be able to use the app on our computer it is necessary to have the phone close to the computer. Why? Because WhatsApp Web is a mirror of the content that we have on our phone, it does not act autonomously, which prevents it from being used in the event that our mobile phone is turned off, we have forgotten the phone or the connection is not adequate.
To solve this, other applications such as Telegram bet on the use of user names and two-step verification with a phone. When we synchronize our Telegram account on the computer, we can already use it independently, without our phone next to. This is what WhatsApp is testing. In the last betas WABetaInfo has reported that the option is being introduced Paired Devices.
This option will allow the user to link up to 4 devices that can use the messaging application without depending on the connection of the main phone. These devices could be tablets, web browsers, desktop applications, or other mobile phones. Thus, conversations and all our activity inside the app will be synchronized between all paired devices.
