In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 188.8.131.52 update, we shared information regarding a new feature: multi-account. With this feature, it is finally possible to add additional accounts to the same WhatsApp app. When we announced this feature, it was under development. However, thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update, a limited group of beta testers may finally be able to experiment with this feature starting today!
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is adding a feature that allows some beta testers to add additional accounts to the app. It’s possible to add a new account by tapping the arrow icon next to the QR code button. In the same menu, it’s also possible to switch to a different account. When you add a new account, it stays on your device until you decide to log out.
This new feature helps people keep their private chats, work conversations, and other chats all in one app. It keeps your conversations separate, along with notifications, and lets you change between accounts without needing different devices or parallel apps. We think it will also make it simpler for users to use many accounts on the same device: instead of setting up different WhatsApp accounts separately on each device, you can use one app on your main device to access and switch between your accounts.
In our opinion, this is a highly important feature, and we would never have imagined being here to announce it. With the ability to add additional accounts to a single app, WhatsApp further confirms their dedication and commitment to delivering users an ever-more up-to-date instant messaging application.
The multi-account feature is available to some beta testers that install the latest updates of WhatsApp beta for Android, and it’s rolling out to even more people over the coming weeks.
