WhatsApp Rolls Out Multiple Accounts to all Android Users

The feature has been in beta testing mode before now. For your information, Telegram already had the features for years. 

What is The Function of Multiple Accounts Feature on WhatsApp for Android

In a blogpost on its official website, WhatsApp said the feature allows you to use two different accounts on the same smartphone if it's running Android.

Having the ability to run two different WhatsApp accounts at the same time on the same smartphone will eliminate the need for users to carry two smartphones or use the app clone feature.

How to set up multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same Phone?

1. To set up the second WhatsApp account, you'll need a second phone number and SIM card or a phone with multi-SIM or eSIM support. However, if your second SIM card is on a different device, you should still be able to set up the second WhatsApp account as long as you can receive the security code for login.

2. Once you have that sorted, you can go to WhatsApp settings, click on the arrow next to your name, click "Add account," and follow the instructions.

3. WhatsApp says you can control your privacy and notification settings for both accounts separately.

The new feature is now rolling out to all stable WhatsApp users. If you haven’t gotten it yet, just make sure you have the latest version of the app, while you patiently wait for the update.
