WhatsApp will soon be testing a new feature which will allow you to send messages without having to use your phone.
For now WhatsApp is linked to a user’s phone with desktop and web apps which needs the device to be connected and able to receive messages.
They are planning that the new feature will allow users to send and receive messages “even if your phone battery is dead”. With the plan to allow users to use up to four different devices.
To begin with, the new feature will first be released as a beta test “for a small group of users”, to allow the development team to improve performance and add features before releasing it to the public.
End-to-end encryption will still work under this new system – which is a large selling point for most users.
