With the new feature however, new messages will be delivered to all devices registered, and chat histories are immediately synced across platforms.

The report claims that when the feature will be activated on different devices, there will be a need to sync chat histories between devices. Users will then be able to use WhatsApp on iPhone and iPad at the same time.

Paired with support for cross-operating-system chat synchronisation, this feature will allow users to use the same WhatsApp account and number on both an Android smartphone and iPhone simultaneously.

Xiaomi has also added liquid cooling support in the smartphone to improve the gaming experience for the Redmi Note 8 Pro users. The Mi 10 Extremely will be accessible in mainland China on August 16th, and it'll begin at 5,299 Yuan (all around $760).

The messaging giant is now planning to let you log into 4 other devices apart from the primary device to access WhatsApp simultaneously. For one, this feature appears to be a cross-platform one, which means that you'll be able to use the same account on Android and iOS devices. It will come as a major relief to several users as WhatsApp is working to enable another important feature along with multi-device support. Once your chat history and data is copied to the second device, you will have the ability to use WhatsApp on the second device.

WhatsApp has always been known to be working on multi-device support for its popular messaging app. Of course to sync the data, a fast Wi-Fi connection is advised. Now while we have heard about this in the past, WABetaInfo now suggests that the company might be considering bringing this feature for its users. It is possible that WhatsApp will allow mobile devices to be connected to your main device later than WhatsApp for Desktop, according to the report. WhatsApp was said to be previously working to convert the iOS database that would be compatible with Android. No official timeline has been provided either, and with privacy concerns becoming increasingly apparent, a possibility is that WhatsApp are ensuring that their end-to-end encryption promise is kept with the new feature.
