Instant messaging app WhatsApp was testing the multi-device feature in its beta version for the past few months. Now the company has started releasing the stable version of the multi-device feature. This new feature allows users to connect up to five devices and run WhatsApp on them simultaneously. The company has named it as WhatsApp Linked Device, which can be seen in WhatsApp Settings.

As of now, your primary device must be constantly connected to the Internet in order to use the WhatsApp web version. However, after the new update, this restriction has now ended. Now, even if your primary phone is not connected to the Internet through the WhatsApp linked devices feature, you will continue to use the same WhatsApp account on other devices. However, if a user does not use the primary smartphone for more than 14 days, then all the devices connected to it will also be disconnected.
