Reportedly, WhatsApp’s multi-account feature is now available for more beta testers on Android

WhatsApp may soon allow users to access two accounts from a single phone. The app was reportedly spotted testing the multi-account feature for Android phones. Usually, the social media platform also releases the iOS version of the feature in a timely manner. WhatsApp has brought new features to its user base, most notably the ability to share HD photos and videos. In addition, the app is also reportedly testing a new Android interface with a bottom menu bar similar to that of its iOS counterpart.

A WABetaInfo report suggests that more beta users on Android are now getting access to WhatsApp’s multi-account feature. This is currently available for WhatsApp Android beta users and will reportedly roll out to more beta users. The revamped app settings UI is included in this beta release.

At the beginning of June this year, WhatsApp was first spotted testing the multi-account function. The feature allows users to run multiple WhatsApp accounts on a single device. WhatsApp settings now allow users to access a second WhatsApp account on the same device.

In the coming weeks, the app is expected to be updated to the stable version with the multi-account feature. People who have different numbers for different nations or regions, or who have multiple connections, such as for work and personal purposes, might find this feature useful.

Currently, users must have the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android and a compatible Android device to use the multi-account feature. You can create a new account by selecting the following Add account option in the settings menu after enabling the feature. Then they can enter the phone number of the new account and proceed according to the instructions. This new account remains active on the device until you log out.

Each individual WhatsApp account has its own settings, chat history and notifications. By selecting the account switcher in the settings menu, users can switch between accounts.
