The Meta own WhatsApp has introduced the convenience of using two separate accounts on a single Android smartphone. This feature, which has been available to beta testers for a while, is gradually rolling out to the stable channel.
You no longer need to carry two smartphones or use app cloning tools to manage two WhatsApp accounts. This means you can easily keep your personal and work accounts on a single device.
To set up the second WhatsApp account, you’ll need an additional phone number and SIM card, or a phone with multi-SIM or eSIM functionality. Even if your second SIM card is in a different device, you can create a second WhatsApp account by receiving the necessary security code for login.
To get started, go to WhatsApp settings, click on the arrow next to your name, choose “Add account,” and follow the provided instructions.
WhatsApp allows you to manage privacy and notification settings separately for each of your accounts.
Please note that the multi-account feature may not be available to everyone immediately; it will take some time to reach users worldwide.
