Breaking news from Meta! Mark Zuckerberg has just announced a game-changing feature for WhatsApp that will revolutionize how you use the popular messaging platform.
You can now seamlessly run two WhatsApp accounts simultaneously on the same device, simplifying the way you manage your digital life.
Think of it as a feature akin to managing two Instagram accounts. This means you can effortlessly balance your work and personal life or maintain distinct social circles within the app.
The development of this feature has been underway since June and was recently spotted in a WhatsApp for Android beta update.
Here's the catch: to harness the power of two WhatsApp accounts on one device, you'll need two distinct phone numbers, each associated with an active SIM card.
With this new feature, you'll notice a fresh addition – the 'Add Account' option, positioned conveniently next to your name within the Settings.
Tap on this option to initiate the registration of your secondary WhatsApp account. The process involves authenticating your identity using an OTP (One-Time Password).
Additionally, the option to use a Passkey is gradually rolling out and should soon be accessible to all users. Following the on-screen prompts, you can seamlessly complete the setup process.
Intriguingly, Meta has also revealed that you'll have the flexibility to configure distinct privacy and notification settings for each of your WhatsApp accounts, allowing you to customize your messaging experience.
While Android users can anticipate the arrival of this multi-account WhatsApp feature in the coming months, there's no official word on when iOS users can expect to enjoy this exciting capability.
Furthermore, it's worth noting that WhatsApp has already introduced the ability to use the platform on multiple devices. If you're curious about how this works, we've got a guide to make it a breeze.
