The future of telecommunication in
2021 is taking a different course, with business owners forced to embrace
modern forms of communication, including the new media, in their daily B2C and
A company owner/director with the
need to engage customers and other businesses using different contacts has
become an emergent trend, especially with WhatsApp communication. I have been
wondering how can one keep two WhatsApp Accounts on a single mobile phone,
rather than walking with two or more gadgets.
Well, it is possible to have dual
WhatsApp on a single gadget, just like many Android phones come with support
for dual-SIM card slots.
I know Android users reading this
article have begun to question this analogy, but it’s good news if you own a
smartphone from companies like Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo, Oppo, Huawei, and Honor.
According to Gadgets Now, these
companies offer ‘Dual Apps’ or ‘Dual Mode’ feature (whose name differs
depending on the brand), allowing users to run two different accounts of the
same chat app.
For instance, to get the feature on
your phone (Samsung, Xiaom, Oppo, Vivo, Asus, Huawei, and Honor), here is how
to locate the feature (name).
Settings > Advance features >
Settings > Dual Apps
Settings > Clone Apps
Settings > App clone
Settings > Twin apps
Huawei and Honor: App Twin
Settings> App Twin
How to set up the feature
Open the dual apps settings option on
Select the app you want to duplicate
(in this case select WhatsApp).
Wait for the process to finish.
Now, head to the home screen and tap
on the second WhatsApp logo you see in your app launcher.
Configure using another phone number
and get going.
Google Play Store
For android phones that do not come
with this feature, google play store has a solution –offering several apps such
as Parallel, Dual App Wizard, DoubleApp, and more, which a user can download
and follow the same procedure to launch the dual WhatsApp Accounts for easier
communication –without necessarily having to carry two phones.
