WhatsApp will include multi-device functionality and a disappearing ‘view once' feature

According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, WhatsApp will soon allow you to use the popular instant messaging app on several devices at the same time. According to top executives, the instant messaging app, which has over 2 billion users, plans to expand its disappearing messages functionality.

According to WaBetaInfo, Zuckerberg said that multi-device compatibility will be coming to the instant messaging app "soon." Users will be able to link up to four devices to one account, according to WhatsApp CEO Will Cathcart. According to him, WhatsApp is also working on a special WhatsApp app for the iPad.

Zuckerberg explained, “It’s been a big technical challenge to get all your messages and content to sync properly across devices even when your phone battery dies, but we’ve solved this and we’re looking forward to getting it out soon!”

The instant messaging service, which put a seven-day countdown on texts last year (disappearing mode), is now proposing to expand this function to allow users to share images and videos that can only be viewed once. “We’re also about to start rolling out ‘view once,’ so you can send content and have it disappear after the person sees it,” Zuckerberg added.

WhatsApp users will soon be able to use disappearing mode for all-new chats across the app.

These functionalities will be accessible to users in public beta "in the next month or two," according to Zuckerberg and Cathcart, who spoke to the media outlet.
