At the end of last year it was rumored that WhatsApp would have access to the iPad and, therefore, i multi-device support, a feature that soft messaging clients are preparing to launch soon.
This support for multiple devices will also be accessible WhatsApp for Android so that we can use our account on various phones and tablets. Your app has been preparing for this program for several weeks and its latest beta version is giving us new directions for its performance.
WhatsApp on different devices
Support WhatsApp is a versatile device it's still a mystery. We don't know yet when it will see the light or how it will work, but beta 2.20.143 would provide an important clue.
WhatsApp it already works on the main subscription screen, and that the guys at WABetaInfo were able to activate to show us their first shots.
On this screen we see that in the "Sign in new device" section it informs us that we need to connect to a Wi-Fi network to continue, although it gives us the option to continue mobile data, warning that in detail the network process can be slow and waste a lot of data.
I mentioned support for more devices for future versions.
WhatsApp is already showing the line "Use WhatsApp on other devices", suggesting that other devices will be able to use the same account in the future.

Why use Wi-Fi? Well it looks like it's going to be about time. All conversations, photos, videos, files and audio notes will be sent to the new device. That's why WhapApp will automatically request to connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Incoming messages will access all of our devices, sync outstanding messages, muted conversations, archive, etc. … Well, it seems that mobile with the original account will always have to be connected as it did with the Web site.
