WhatsApp is getting closer to launch multi-device support on its app as according to a new report, the app is bringing a log-out feature for the app that will un-link the device from their WhatsApp account.
The report comes from WABetaInfo which says that with the log out feature, people will no longer have to delete their account or completely uninstall WhatsApp to log out from their account. It will basically help people unlink their account from the device. The feature has been spotted on the beta update with version 220.127.116.11.
The Log Out option replaced the Delete Account option in Settings as per the feature tracker but this may change in the future. It also showed a demo video of the feature where after tapping on the ‘Log Out’ button, the app takes the user to the ‘Agree and Continue’ page. This log out button will be necessary as multiple devices will get linked to a single account in the future.
The feature is being implemented in two forms, including one for WhatsApp Web and one for the linked devices. Where the first one will allow users to use WhatsApp Web without the device needing an internet connection to which WhatsApp Web is connected to, the second one will allow users to link their WhatsApp account with up to four different devices.
The report further states that this feature in beta works in both WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business. The report also adds that this feature will be available on Android as well as the video shown is on an iOS device.
