WhatsApp is not just limited to instant messaging features; it also allows you to share file attachments, make payments, make voice/video calls, and more.
WhatsApp is now available for almost all platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Web. Over the past few months, WhatsApp has been said to be working on multi-device support. Now it looks like the company is rolling out the Multi-device support feature to a limited number of testers.
What is Multi-Device Support in WhatsApp?
