WhatsApp is currently working on multiple features like dark mode, grouped stickers, multiple device support and more for its Android and iOS apps. WhatsApp on Android and iOS usually stacks the stickers together if you send two of them in succession. And this is done to save space in the chat window. On small-screen devices, it helps and WhatsApp was also known to work on bringing it to WhatsApp Web as well. The feature is now available.
According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp has recently updated its Android App with new feature as well. The latest update doesn’t reveal anything major but it comes with a small UI change and gives more information on multiple device support. The photo icon on WhatsApp has been replaced from the camera to an image. What was previously seen as a camera will now show a picture icon on WhatsApp. This is a minor update and may even go unnoticed by users.
WhatsApp latest update shares more information on the upcoming multiple device support. WhatsApp will introduce a new feature called ‘Registration Notifications’ for multiple device support. When users try to log in their WhatsApp account on a second device they will receive a message on the original device. The message will read, “The recipient’s device list changed. Tap Verify to confirm the new security code.”
Users can then verify the new security code and start using WhatsApp on a different device. WhatsApp currently allows only one account per device. With this new feature, users will able to use the same WhatsApp account on more than one device. It was previously reported that chats will still remain end-to-end encrypted even with multi-platform support.
