WhatsApp has been on a spree of launching new features under the Meta conglomerate. It has unveiled a long-anticipated functionality for its user base. This groundbreaking feature allows you to use multiple WhatsApp accounts on a smartphone.
The company has added the latest feather to its cap by announcing a new feature that allows users to have two WhatsApp accounts activated simultaneously. This functionality is valuable, especially for switching between different WhatsApp accounts seamlessly without carrying multiple devices. It will allow users to easily use two profiles, one for work and the other as personal.
How to use multiple WhatsApp accounts on a single mobile device?
- You must have a secondary phone number, alongside the availability of either a physical SIM card or a device compatible with multiple SIMs or eSIM technology.
- Navigate to your WhatsApp settings.
- Click on the arrow icon situated near your designated name.
- Select the ‘Add account’ option.
- Once your secondary account is set up, you can manage your privacy and notification settings for each account individually.
The company has placed more importance on using the genuine WhatsApp application instead of other variants to add more accounts.
Furthermore, WhatsApp has recently rolled out a feature targeting beta participants, enabling them to send one-time voice messages. This feature is similar to the ‘view once’ feature for images and videos. A user can send a voice message that can be played only once and cannot be forwarded or saved.
The messaging platform has recently rolled out many new features and improved UI for channels. The platform has also been testing various features like a secret code feature for securing chats, the ability to pin messages within chats and more.
Meta is improving WhatsApp by adding new features that are useful and groundbreaking. WhatsApp has become one of the most used messenger apps today and features like these will only increase its usage and popularity among the masses.
