WhatsApp update: Now link the messaging app with up to 4 devices
A new app from WhatsApp has been released to make “connecting devices” simpler. The messaging software recently announced that users may join up to four devices to WhatsApp, and that the discussions would continue to sync even if the phone is unavailable.
The company tweeted, “No charger, no problem. Now you can link WhatsApp to up to four devices so your chats stay synced, encrypted, and flowing even after your phone goes offline.”
Also, WhatsApp’s official Twitter account shared the download URL for the app to facilitate device connection.
“To make linking devices even easier, we’ve created an entirely new app for Windows.
With faster loading and a familiar interface, chatting between devices feels seamless.

The Meta-owned business launched two new capabilities for “Group” admins yesterday. The messaging app now has a new feature that allows group managers to control who is permitted to join a group. With the new functionality, an admin will have more control over who may join when they decide to distribute their group’s invite link or make their group joinable in a community.
The company announced “Last year, we rolled out Communities, to help people get the most out of their groups on WhatsApp. Since launching, we’ve wanted to build even more tools for admins and users alike. Today we’re excited to roll out a few new changes we’ve made to make groups more manageable for admins and easier to navigate for everyone”.
The option to search a contact’s name to find groups they share is another feature coming to WhatsApp.
“With the growth of Communities and their larger groups, we want to make it easy to know which groups you have in common with someone. Whether you’re trying to remember the name of a group you know you share with someone or you want to see the groups you’re both in, you can now easily search a contact’s name to see your groups in common,” WhatsApp stated.
