In the past few months, the well-known leaker WABetaInfo has announced various details about the possibility of using the same WhatsApp account on multiple devices at the same time.
This feature, which is still under development, has some complexity as WhatsApp processes its users’ messages. Also Read – How WhatsApp Users Can Create Messenger Rooms
Remember that these are not stored on a server but are encrypted.
However, it seems the company is now taking the necessary steps to offer this long-awaited feature without sacrificing an iota of its security.
The source quoted has revealed that WhatsApp is working on a new messaging system. This allows the conversation history to be transferred from one device to another over a Wi-Fi network.
The methodology is simple. When someone signs in to their account on a new device, WhatsApp initiates the transfer of conversations from the original device. This way, the chat history is always in sync without having to save conversations on an external server, similar to Telegram.

When this process is complete and the user receives a new message, they will reach all devices on which they have logged in with their account. The smartphone does not act as a bridge or needs to be connected to the internet.
For security reasons, WhatsApp changes the encryption keys each time the user logs in or out of a new device. According to the specified source, up to four different devices can be associated with each account.
With this new system, not only will you be able to use the same WhatsApp account on two different smartphones, but you will also be able to open the doors to the future WhatsApp application for the iPad.
The report did not disclose when all of these features would be implemented given the complexity of the system. However, it is expected to be available soon if the reports are to be believed.
