You are already able to use the same WhatsApp account on numerous devices, but if your smartphone is powered by Android, you now have the ability to utilize two separate WhatsApp accounts on the same device. Users of WhatsApp’s beta version have had access to this functionality for some time, but it is just now beginning to roll out to the stable channel. This is a feature that Telegram has had for years.
It will no longer be necessary for users to carry two smartphones or make use of the app clone function if they have the option to run two different WhatsApp accounts concurrently on the same mobile device.
How can I create multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same mobile device?
You will (obviously) require a second phone number and SIM card, as well as a phone that supports multi-SIM or eSIM functionality, in order to set up the second WhatsApp account. However, even if your second SIM card is installed on a separate device, you should still be able to set up the second WhatsApp account as long as you can get the login security code. This is the case even if you already have the first account set up.
When you’ve got that figured out, head over to the WhatsApp settings, click the arrow next to your name, select “Add account,” and then proceed with the rest of the setup by following the on-screen prompts.
WhatsApp indicates that you are able to independently modify the privacy settings and notification preferences of each account.
Even though we are using the most recent version of WhatsApp on our Android devices, we are unable to find the option to create a second account. This indicates that it will be at least a week or two before this feature is made available to all Android users around the world.
