WhatsApp has been working on the ability to use your WhatsApp account on multiple devices at once for some time now. Details about the security of these messages have surfaced in a new version of the chat app.
The multi-device feature, or the ability to use your WhatsApp account on multiple devices at once, will be rolled out to WhatsApp beta within two months. Now many people wonder whether the messages that can be sent between these four devices are readable by third parties if they are intercepted. According to details in version 22.214.171.124 of WhatsApp Beta, this is not possible, WABetaInfo discovered.
The screenshot that the website has published shows the screen that will be displayed if you have just turned on a multi-device. WhatsApp now indicates that end-to-end encryption for conversations and messages via multi-device is also enabled.
End-to-end encryption means that the connection between two devices is encrypted. To view the messages, you must have a key, which is only available to you and your conversation partner(s). This also means that, for example, WhatsApp itself or security services cannot just listen to your messages or conversations.

It was also recently announced that up to four devices can be paired, but you cannot use the same WhatsApp account on a second smartphone. The screenshot confirms this again.
The multi-device feature will be rolled out to WhatsApp Beta within two months. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this on June 3. You read here already about the operation of multi-device and why it’s such a much-requested feature. In addition to multi-device, we can expect two other new features soon.
