Here’s some good news. Meta has just announced that you’ll soon be able to use multiple accounts on WhatsApp, and this is a good news if you’re on a phone with double SIM.
If you remember, the social media giant experimented with this feature on several beta testers back in August.
This is a welcome change for many users who have been using workarounds, such as carrying two phones or using third-party apps like on several Chinese Android smartphones, to manage multiple accounts.
“What’s better than having a WhatsApp account? Well, of course it’s having two,” says WhatsApp in the official blog announcement.
Want to take this feature out for a spin? Follow these steps.
How to use multiple accounts on WhatsApp.
1. Open your WhatsApp app.
2. Go to Settings.
3. Click on the arrow next to your name ? Add account.
Though, you need make sure that you have the latest version of WhatsApp, then follow these steps. This would only work if you have a second phone number and SIM card or a mobile that accepts multi-SIM or eSIM.
Oh, did we also mention that Meta’s AI assistant is also coming to WhatsApp?
