What Is WhatsApp Multi-Device Feature?

WhatsApp's multi-device feature will enable users to use their WhatsApp account on up to four devices even when the primary device is not connected to the internet. Hence, even if your phone is switched off, you can still receive messages and calls on other devices.

If you are using the multi-device feature on a web browser, you won't be able to make or receive calls. However, if you download the desktop version of WhatsApp for Windows or Mac, you can use all the features even when the primary device is not connected to the internet.

Is This An iOS-Exclusive Feature?

No, the WhatsApp multi-device feature is not an iOS-exclusive feature. However, as of now, the feature is only available for iPhones and WhatsApp is likely to release the same for Android devices in the coming days. WhatsApp states that all the messages even on the secondary devices are end-to-end encrypted.
