Set up and use Multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same Device.

Meta-owned WhatsApp is set to introduce a new feature that will make it easier for users to access multiple accounts on a single device. Known as the “Dual WhatsApp Account” feature, the functionality was officially confirmed by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook and is expected to roll out in the coming days.

Currently, users who need to manage multiple WhatsApp accounts have to use an additional phone or tablet or go through the tedious process of constantly logging in and out of accounts on the same device.

To use this feature, users will need a second phone number, which can be a physical SIM card or an e-SIM number. This means that your device must support multi-SIM functionality or e-SIM connectivity Without a second phone number, it is not possible to set up a second WhatsApp account on the same device The alternate number is used to receive the one-time passcode for verification, as WhatsApp usually sends it via SMS.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to set up and use multiple WhatsApp accounts on the same device:
