In a previous Android beta version, v2.20.143, of the Facebook-owned app, it was revealed that on the primary registration screen, the app asks users to switch to Wi-Fi as “without Wi-Fi, logging in may be slow, and may use a large amount of your data plan.”
Just last month, in the Android beta version 2.20.152 of WhatsApp, a feature called ‘Linked Devices’ was spotted that basically will be used in the future to link the multiple devices. Once this feature is rolled out, users will see a message that reads, “Use WhatsApp on other devices. Send or receive messages from your browser computer or Facebook portal.” Right below the message, there will be a green button with the description ‘Link a new device.’
Readers must note that by the time the feature is actually rolled out, it is possible that it may go through several other changes, and may appear different.
