WhatsApp Tests A Feature That Allows Users To Delete Chats Across All Devices (Handy For Those Who Use Multi-Device Option)

The world of today is probably eons away from what the people expected the world to be today a hundred years ago. The human race has gone at speeds faster than anyone had imagined, and as a result of great human thinkers, innovators, engineers, scientists, philosophers, and others, we live in a world surrounded by comfort, easiness of tasks, and so much more our ancestors could only write fiction about.

But much of today’s spectacles would be obsolete, if not totally useless, if it was not for technological advances, particularly in the form of online and digital modes of communication between people all around the globe. Social media and networking platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and many more not only act as the perfect means to follow the lives of the people you care about, but also serve to connect them directly via instant text messaging. In the forefront of such text messaging applications is the one and only WhatsApp, which, with its easy-to-use features, user-friendly interface, ease of access, and versatility in the technology realm, stands as one of the, if not the, most popular online messaging service.

But the current team managing WhatsApp have made it clear that they do not intend to stay just there, and that they aspire to climb even higher than they currently are. In perfecting their application, they have revamped the application software more times than one can keep track of, and their improvements all bear fruit. One way how WhatsApp ensures such a high level of success in their updates is through rigorous, contemporary Beta Testing methods using the Google Play Beta Program.

One of WhatsApp’s latest updates for Android, which also serves as a Beta Test, brings the version now up to As per WABI, this particular update focuses on an aspect of WhatsApp that truly makes it unique: its Multi-Device feature. By virtue of this Multi-Device option, users can use their WhatsApp account on more than one device by simply linking them to a main account on their phone using Quick Response Codes (QR Codes).

Up until this Beta Test update, WhatsApp users could not delete their chats simultaneously from all linked devices; the deleted chat was lost from the device in use, but the same chat could be found again if logged in to the application from another device. The Beta Test version now hopes to fix this problem. Using their upgraded software to sync chat deletion across all devices in use, WhatsApp is climbing the ladder once again.

Although currently available to only a handful of Android users, the new version, soon after its almost-inevitable success, will be made available to WhatsApp Web/Desktop, Android, and iOS!
