Lately, Meta has been betting heavily on giving WhatsApp users some of the functions that they have been demanding for the longest time and for which many had migrated to Telegram. If the other day we received video calls with a screen sharing option, today some users can use the multi-account option in the messaging app for the first time.
The use of multiple accounts is something that WhatsApp users have been waiting for a long time, especially those with professional and personal profiles to manage. If you want to try this new feature, we’ll tell you how to do it.
Multi-account on WhatsApp
Until now, to be able to use multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same device it was necessary to “clone” the applicationeither with a third-party tool or using app cloning functions integrated into the software of some devices, as is the case with Xiaomi and its option to duplicate accounts, each with a login.
WhatsApp is releasing a new update through the Google Play Beta Program that brings the version to 18.104.22.168. Those who already have this will be able to see that it includes one of the most requested functions by the community: a multiple accounts feature.
WhatsApp launches its new option in beta phase to use multiple accounts of the messaging app on the same device. The best of all is that we can instantly switch from one to the otheras reported in WABetaInfo with an image of the new functionality included.
If you want to try this new feature, first sign up as a WhatsApp beta tester for Android. After this, you will be able to access development versions that already contain features that will be released to the general public in the future before everyone else.
You can add a new account by tapping the arrow icon next to QR code button. In the same menu, it is also possible to switch to a different account. When you add a new account, it remains on your device until you decide to sign out.
Multiple accounts, one device
This new feature helps people keep their private chats, work conversations, and other chats all in one app. It keeps your conversations separate, along with notifications, and allows you Switch between accounts without the need for different devices or apps parallels. It will also likely make it easier for users to use many accounts on the same device: instead of setting up different WhatsApp accounts separately on each device, you can use one app on your main device to access and switch between your accounts.
With the ability to add additional accounts to a single app, WhatsApp further confirms its dedication and commitment to offering users an increasingly updated instant messaging application. The multiple accounts feature is available to some beta testers who install the latest WhatsApp beta updates for Android and will roll out to more people in the coming weeks. So even if you download version 22.214.171.124 it may still not be available to you.
