WhatsApp will make one of the most anticipated functions come true: being able to use the same account on different mobile devices.

According to the specialized site WABetaInfo, the beta version of a new WhatsApp update for Android shows that the popular instant messaging application will update its policies and allow a number or account to be used on different devices simultaneously. This means that you can have your WhatsApp account on your Android phone and tablet, and it is independent of use within WhatsApp Web (where you use the application from a browser).

Another function that has been seen in this update is that of the self-destructing messages, which were renamed as “Expiring messages”. This function was previously called “Delete messages”.
