The cross-device beta version of WhatsApp started rolling out for iOS users, allowing users who were on the stable update channel to try out the new features. These are the advantages and disadvantages they will face when using the multi-device support of WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Cross-Device Beta Test: Two big changes are happening to WhatsApp, the world's most popular encrypted messaging service: the ability to encrypt cloud backups on iCloud and Google Drive, and multi-device support. The former feature of WhatsApp will allow users' chats to be safely backed up to the cloud, while the latter will allow users to use WhatsApp on multiple devices, including WhatsApp Desktop, WhatsApp Web, and on a Portal device. We recently reported that WhatsApp was rolling out beta testing across multiple devices for the upcoming feature for iOS users on the stable (non-beta) channel.

Users who configure multi-device support can connect to up to four other computers using WhatsApp Desktop, WhatsApp Web, and Portal.

Those who use WhatsApp Business will reportedly not be able to edit their profile details from their computer and will have to pick up their smartphone to do so.

Since WhatsApp has had to modify its technology to allow true multi-device functionality, the company says that users who call people using an older version of WhatsApp will not be able to contact them, not even WhatsApp calls.

However, all these issues with WhatsApp's new features are expected to be resolved before WhatsApp's multi-device support officially comes out of beta and is released to the general public in the future.
