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 B2B communication.
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).
Samsung: Dual Messenger
Settings > Advance features > Dual Messenger
Xiaom (MIUI): Dual apps
Settings > Dual Apps
Oppo: Clone Apps
Settings > Clone Apps
Vivo: App clone
Settings > App clone
Asus: Twin apps
Settings > Twin apps
Huawei and Honor: App Twin
Settings> App Twin
How to set up the feature
Open the dual apps settings option on your smartphone.
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.
