The team over at WhatsApp Beta Info had a chat with WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart recently. During the conversation, Cathcart discussed a number of issues facing the platform currently, particularly privacy.
During the conversation, the question was posed about if or when multi-device capability will be added to the platform. It was then that Cathcart added Mark Zuckerberg to the conversation who confirmed the coming feature. As the conversation continued, further details that users will be able to link up to four devices was also confirmed.
With competing messaging options like Telegram and Signal already supporting multiple device logins, perhaps it will help maintain the WhatsApp user base. Will multi-device login be a feature that keeps you on WhatsApp, or will you follow friends elsewhere?
