In response to continuous customer demands, WhatsApp is now testing a new multi-account functionality that enables users to add several accounts to the same device without the need for duplicate or parallel apps.
Additionally, the Meta-owned app is releasing a completely revamped settings interface that provides a more contemporary user experience while going through the many choices of the instant messaging program.
According to WABetaInfo, “the update also features a revamped profile tab directly within the chat list, making it easier for users to access the app’s settings.”
Not only will WhatsApp make it possible to use several accounts on a single device, but it will also make it simpler to keep chats and alerts from various accounts separate. The number of additional accounts you may add to your WhatsApp app is now limited to one, however, a future update may increase this number.
Currently running out to WhatsApp‘s Android beta testers, the new version (WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11), which includes the option to add multiple accounts and the updated settings interface, is shortly anticipated to be made available to more users.
You currently can’t access the update if you use WhatsApp on Android in the public version. However, as it is still under beta testing, Meta is probably going to include it in a later stable version. If you can’t wait, you may apply to become a beta tester in the interim.
