WhatsApp is implementing the ability to use multiple accounts from the same Android terminal, as has been reported in the latest beta for this operating system and which some users can already try.
The company has spent months working on features to facilitate the use of the platform, with options such as the ‘companion mode’that is, a function that makes it possible to link the same account on two devices at the same time.
Last June, WABetaInfo announced that the platform is developing a similar function to use multiple platform accounts on the same device, which would initially be reserved for the business version, that is, WhatsApp Business.
This same portal has now indicated that this feature has begun to reach more Android users, thanks to the latest beta update of whatsapp for android 18.104.22.168, released via Google Play.
To add a new account, tap the arrow icon next to the QR code button. It is then that a menu opens with the option ‘Add Account’, under the main account established in that terminal.
In this same menu it is also possible to switch to a different account and, in case a new account is added, it will remain on the device until the account is closed.
WABetaInfo has pointed out that this feature allows users to keep their private chats and work conversations in one app and keep their notifications separate.
It has also indicated that from now on, instead of configuring different platform accounts separately on each mobile, you can use a single application on your main device to access them.
This option is already available for some beta testers who install the latest version of WhatsApp for Android and will reach other users of this operating system in the coming weeks.
