Currently, WhatsApp allows its users to access its platform across multiple devices via one account with an active internet connection. The feature of having access to the platform anywhere does come in handy but does not extend maximum usability. To achieve the maximum potential, the company is looking to release true multi-device support.

Currently, multi-device support allows users to use it via WhatsApp Web and or the dedicated application. Also, you need to have an active internet connection on your main device. True multidevice support will allow users to use the app on multiple devices without an active connection on the main device.
