Are you looking to use dual WhatsApp accounts on the same phone? Do you want two different WhatsApp accounts for work and your personal life? If ‘Yes’ is your answer to either of these questions, you are in the right place, my friend.
While the messaging app has become one of the most essential parts of our lives as far as digital communication is concerned, WhatsApp’s biggest goal was to become a platform which brings you closer to your family and friends, it has now become a popular communication channel for businesses and other organisations as well.
However, there are people who don’t like the fact that whenever they are in between a personal chat, someone from office bugs them for something just because they were online or if they share a status, it also gets shared with their work friends. There can be various other situations similar to this where you need dual WhatsApp accounts and if you are looking for a guide on ‘how to use two WhatsApp accounts on one smartphone’, here is everything you will ever need to know.
If you are looking to use dual WhatsApp accounts, there are several Android smartphones which come with a feature known as App cloning or App twin. Most of these smartphones are from Chinese brands along with some new smartphones from Samsung and LG. This is the feature you need to use dual WhatsApp on your phone or any other app, but you should have dual SIMs in your phone, as well.
