WhatsApp Now Allows Multiple Accounts On Same Device

WhatsApp has launched a new feature that enables users to manage numerous accounts from a single device.

On Thursday, the Meta-owned platform unveiled the new functionality in a blog post.

According to WhatsApp, the functionality will allow users to “switch between accounts,” removing the need to “worry about messaging from the wrong place.”

It did, however, add that the feature can only be accessed through two different phone lines.

“Today, we’re introducing the ability to have two WhatsApp accounts logged in at the same time. Helpful for switching between accounts – such as your work and personal – now you no longer need to log out each time, carry two phones or worry about messaging from the wrong place,” the post reads.

“To set up a second account, you will need a second phone number and SIM card, or a phone that accepts multi-SIM or eSIM. Simply open your WhatsApp settings, click on the arrow next to your name, and click “Add account”. You can control your privacy and notification settings on each account.

“As a reminder, only use the official WhatsApp and don’t download imitations or fake versions as a way of getting more accounts on your phone. Your messages are only secure and private when using the official WhatsApp.”

WhatsApp has recently been actively pushing out new features to improve user experiences and keep up with shifting communication patterns.

On August 8, the social network launched a screen-sharing function to improve video calling on its platform.

In July, the Meta-owned company also debuted an instant video messaging tool.
