finally! WhatsApp Web can be used without the mobile connected
WhatsApp has just received its first update of the year on Android, number 188.8.131.52, through the beta program of the Google Play Store. What does it bring back? As for functions that the user can see and use, then practically nothing. The only new thing that you will notice is the terms of service that you will have to accept again, because they have been updated, to continue using WhatsApp normally.
Now, at the code level, the folks at WABetaInfo have discovered that WhatsApp version 184.108.40.206 includes an option that will allow users to test a beta of WhatsApp Web. With this beta, you can use WhatsApp Web without having to keep the main mobile connected or turned on. This is part of the multi-device support that is one of the 3 great novelties of WhatsApp for 2021.
WhatsApp Web will become independent: you will no longer need your mobile to chat from your PC
By 2021, WhatsApp is expected to activate multi-device support that will allow the same WhatsApp account to be used on up to 4 devices at the same time, according to previous leaks. The great thing about this mount is that it doesn’t require a primary device to be kept on and connected to the internet. WhatsApp can work independently in all four.
One of the devices from which you can use WhatsApp independently is your PC through WhatsApp Web or the desktop app. Unfortunately, the option of using WhatsApp Web without a mobile phone connection cannot be tested yet. However, WhatsApp is preparing a public beta version of WhatsApp Web that can be tested soon, and that works without having the mobile connected. When will it be released? There is no estimated date
When it is available, to test it you will only have to choose to use the beta from the WhatsApp Web option in the Android app. There they will warn you that it is a test function that may present errors and that it does not yet have some features (such as new calls or the options to mute, archive and delete chats or messages).
Given that the leaked images give us a good idea of what this feature will look like, it seems that we won’t have to wait long to test it. Anyway, do not worry, because here we will notify you as soon as possible when WhatsApp Web can already be used without connecting the mobile.
