WhatsApp has recently updated its beta and Android apps for new features. These beta updates also show the development of a dark mode that is almost ready for stable release. We recently learned that WhatsApp is working on enabling users to use a single WhatsApp account on multiple devices. A new update now shows how this feature will work.
In the beta version of WhatsApp 184.108.40.206, WABetaInfo unveiled a multi-platform support for WhatsApp. Whenever you sign in to another device and set up WhatsApp, it always requires a registration / verification code. Similarly, WhatsApp will also request a registration code when users try to sign in to WhatsApp on another device.
Currently, WhatsApp allows multi-platform support for WhatsApp Web only. However, this comes with limitations as your phone needs a stable internet connection and should be close to your desktop. WhatsApp also allows one device for one account. In a previous update, it was announced that WhatsApp conversations would still be encrypted from end to end, as the company "is developing a new method for assigning keys to specific devices".
Another WhatsApp update is more rebranding for the messaging app. A prominent little rebranding that took place recently was the "WhatsApp from Facebook" setting up the messaging app. Facebook is taking things further by integrating it into the splash screen. Now that users have opened the app, the WhatsApp spray screen will greet them with "from Facebook" visible below.
This update also shares more views on the dark WhatsApp mode, but there is still no confirmation as to when it will be available. WhatsApp Dark Mode for Android is almost ready, making stable release approx.
