New Delhi | Jagran Technology Desk: Meta-owned messaging app WhatsApp had recently rolled out various new features for its Android and iOS users and one among them is multi-device support system. This feature allows users to use their WhatsApp account on other devices without requiring their phones to be connected to the internet.
The feature is already in testing on both Android and iOS devices and is currently available in beta mode.

Apart from that, WhatsApp has also confirmed that this feature support end-to-end encryption, which means your calls, chats, and media will remain private.
