We have been talking about the multi-device mode of WhatsApp for a long time. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg himself and WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart confirmed a few months ago that each account can be used on a total of four devices, which we have already been able to test in the beta of the application.
Last year we also learned that this multi-device support for WhatsApp for Android would allow us to use our account not only on different mobiles, but also on tablets. So far we have only seen it on mobile phones and in the web version, but now WaBetaInfo guarantees that, thanks to device mode 2.0, one of these devices could be an Android tablet.
Android tablets will support multi-device mode
Although many people already use WhatsApp on their Android tablets, so far it is only possible to do so through WhatsApp web or by downloading the corresponding APK. This is about to change as a multi-device mode is in place for the native app which can also be run on tablets.
WhatsApp already has a multi-device mode ready which can be tested in the beta version and will be available in the stable version soon. Although there is currently no record of tablet support, WaBetaInfo predicts that the official WhatsApp application will have a 2.0 multi-device mode that will allow use of the iPad or Android tablet. as one of the four linked devices.
