The WhatsApp Multi-Device feature getting closer: you can have the same account on 4 terminals at once - WhatsApp is developing a major update, which seems to be getting closer and closer. If this functionality crystallizes, you'll be able to have your account linked to multiple devices, as detailed by WaBetaInfo.

With this novelty (which is known as 'connected devices'), there will be up to 4 terminals that can be associated to a single user, be they Mobile, Tablets or computers.

However, this possibility will not work like WhatsApp Web. The novelty is that each login will be independent, without the need to have the main account active and close to the other devices, which is currently happening in the written.

The app can be accessed from any of the linked devices, without the need for the main mobile phone to be feeding the rest. For that reason, you will not need the internet connection to come from the smartphone, explains the same source.

Also, changes made to each device will be automatically updated on the others. If you have your phone turned off, you can still access the app and, if you have several terminals turned on at the same time, you can use it interchangeably.

Your session history migrates from hardware to hardware and travels encrypted.

As before, the phone number and SMS code will form the identification to start the different sessions.

In any case, the company is developing this functionality and it is not known when it will be enabled, effectively, for the end user. For now, it will only be available to those who have access to the latest Android beta.

Since the change is in the trial period, we will have to wait to know how WhatsApp implements this novelty and to find out how it will be the authentication method that allows validating the app on each of the devices.

Travel to any part of the world in one hour will be possible from 2045, promises a Chinese scientist

A new technology that allows you to travel anywhere in the world in less than an hour.

It is the theory that has revealed a leading Chinese academic, Weimin Bao, on the space research that is being carried out at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a plan that in his eyes, could be fulfilled by the year 2045.

According to the expert during the 2020 Chinese space conference in Fuzhou, these trips, as conceived in his team, could become as routine as catching a plane today.

Bao, who is also director of the Science and Technology Commission of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, believes that this normality will not come until hypersonic flight technology (i.e., 5 times the sound barrier) and reusable rocket technology are fully understood.

While 2045 may seem like a long way in the future, it will soon be seen how the project is progressing, as the first of the stages that the research teams have put in is scheduled for 2025, with good prospects in sight. After him, a second check will follow in 2035 in which, Bao says, space travel by plane will have grown to such an extent that tons of conventional cargo and passengers will have been transported.

After this second check point, we will have to wait another decade, until 2045, for the overall space travel system to be fully formed, tested and finished: then it will be able to go into operation to revolutionize the journeys as we know them. When running at full speed, the system could perform thousands of flights each year, involving tens of thousands of passengers at speeds never seen.

In this prism, China is trying to catch up with Russia and the United States in the new space race to become a major world power by 2030, when it hopes to catch up in discoveries and technology to unravel the mysteries of outer space. In recent years, the government has taken several steps to make space flights more economical, but it lacks many years of experience that the other two nations do treasure.

For the time being, Chinese laboratories and research centres are catching up on reusable carrier rocket technology-which propels ships to take off and, when they fall, can be converted into new models— and it has already successfully launched and landed a reusable spacecraft earlier this month.

The country had already announced 3 years ago that in 2020 it would launch a ship of these characteristics that would fly like an airplane, in advance of this new culture of air travel that they want to implement. However, secrecy surrounded the mission and the state media took time to echo the news until the Hong Kong daily South China Morning Post managed to reveal the exclusive.
