The Revolutionary WhatsApp Feature That Lets You Send Messages Without A Cell Phone Or Battery

WhatsApp has introduced a new feature in its application that allows users to send messages without depending on their mobile phone. This is a giant step for the instant messaging app owned by Facebook that, to date, made WhatsApp accounts strongly linked to a mobile terminal and a specific phone number.

To date, for a user to be able to send or receive WhatsApp messages, they need to have the application open (turned on and operational) on the mobile with which it was associated with an internet connection and battery.

However, thanks to the new changes, the application will no longer have this strong link with a telephone number with the application open and connected to the Internet, as is currently the case with the WhatsApp web version.

The changes, currently available in a beta version for Android and very soon available for iOS and the general public, involve the reconversion of WhatsApp into a real multi-device app, as is currently the case with its competitor Telegram.

This new WhatsApp function will allow you to send and receive messages " even if your phone's battery is exhausted ."

Specifically, WhatsApp can be used practically autonomously on up to four devices (laptops, desktops, tablets or a mobile other than our main phone) without having to depend on a single terminal as is currently the case.

At the moment, the application is in the testing phase by a small group of users in charge of giving feedback to Facebook (the company that owns WhatsApp ) in order to improve the functions of this application. However, you will still need a card and a phone number to be able to connect to WhatsApp.


Likewise, WhatsApp has been working for months on an encryption system that protects the backup copies stored in the cloud.

It is a function that is currently also in beta phase and that will be incorporated to the general public in the next final versions.

To encrypt files in the cloud, WhatsApp will ask users for a password . A password that, according to the company, will be totally private and they maintain that neither WhatsApp, Facebook, Google or Apple will know what it is.

That is, in the case of users who decide to encrypt their conversations and forget their passwords, they will not be able to access their conversation history , according to the WABetaInfo portal.

Likewise, in addition to the password, WhatsApp will offer the possibility of protecting the conversation histories with a 64-digit encryption key.

However, as with the password, if the user loses it, they will have no way to regain access to their conversation history on your WhatsApp.
