How to Use Two WhatsApp Accounts on Your Android Smartphone in 2024

Many people use different WhatsApp accounts for personal and professional communications, but you don’t have to carry around two phones to accomplish that. This guide will show you how to acquire both of your WhatsApp accounts on an Android smartphone if you have two.

You can create a second account within the same app using WhatsApp’s unique “Multiple Accounts” functionality. You will need a second phone number or SIM card, as well as a phone that supports dual-SIM or eSIM, in order to add another account. Here’s how to use the “Multiple Accounts” function on WhatsApp to create your extra account.

First, confirm that you have downloaded the most recent version of the WhatsApp software from the Google Play Store. Click the profile icon to access the Play Store, then select “Manage Apps & Device.” Locate WhatsApp and, if there is one, press the “Update” button adjacent to it.
Open the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone, hit the three dots in the top-right corner to bring up the menu, and choose “Settings.”

Open the latest version of WhatsApp on your phone, hit the three dots in the top-right corner to bring up the menu, and choose “Settings.”
Click the drop-down menu next to your profile banner on the settings page, then select “Add Account.”
The WhatsApp setup screen will appear; select “Agree and Continue” to continue. After entering the registered mobile number for your desired secondary WhatsApp account, click “Next.”
When prompted, enter the number twice and press “OK” to confirm it. Next, input the six-digit verification code that was texted to your backup phone.

All active instances of the secondary WhatsApp account, including any related devices, will be automatically logged out as soon as you check the code.

Choose the Google account that is linked to you. if you have decided to use Drive to sync your current backup. Complete your profile information by selecting a picture for your profile, entering the name you want for your profile, and clicking “Next.”

You can switch between your secondary WhatsApp account and the app by selecting “Switch Accounts” from the three-dot menu located in the upper-right corner of the app after some time.

You may also use the drop-down menu next to your profile banner to swap between accounts.

Make use of Android’s Clone or Dual Apps feature.
You can use the “Dual Apps” or “Clone Apps” functionality featured on select Android smartphones in place of the “Multiple Accounts” option if it’s not available in your area. You can make two WhatsApp apps on your phone—one for each account—by using this feature, which lets you duplicate or create a mirror replica of a selected app.

The Android skins ColorOS, OxygenOS, Nothing OS, MIUI, and HyperOS are a few that provide this functionality. The precise setting names and locations may vary significantly depending on your device. For this tutorial, I’m using a Nothing Phone (2) running Nothing OS.

On your phone, first navigate to Settings and then “Apps” or “Applications.”

Select “Cloned Apps” from the Apps menu (in some Android skins, this may also be referred to as “Dual Apps” or “Clone Apps”).

Locate WhatsApp in the list and turn on the toggle that is adjacent to it.

This will cause the WhatsApp app to be copied immediately. Open it and enter your other mobile number to set it up. It may start up automatically on other Android skins, but with Nothing OS, you have to start it manually.
To find the “Dual Apps” or “Cloned Apps” option, utilize the “Search bar” in the Settings app. If nothing appears, the feature is not on your phone.

Use Different Accounts for the Business and Messenger Apps
You can still obtain two WhatsApp accounts on your phone by using the WhatsApp Messenger and WhatsApp Business apps, even if your phone does not support app cloning. Simply provide a separate number for each app.

Give WhatsApp Business permission to notify you when something happens. Next, key in the backup phone number you intend to use it with. Enter the registered number if you already have a second WhatsApp account, then click “Next.”

If you have already used the same number on the ordinary WhatsApp Messenger app, you will see a pop-up. To transfer the cell number to WhatsApp Business, select “Continue”.

Now, finish the verification by calling someone or, if you choose, by tapping “Verify another way.” Depending on your desire, you can select phone verification or SMS verification.

Once you’ve confirmed, press “Continue” to move on.
Next, give WhatsApp Business access to your contacts, music, and images or videos if desired. If wanted, you can pick and choose which pictures and videos to use.
Give WhatsApp Business permission to access your Google Drive when asked in order to retrieve your most recent backup (if any). To restart, simply tap “skip.”

Choose the Google account that is linked to you. If you decide to use Drive to sync your current backup. Next, fill out your profile details by selecting a picture and entering your name. If you are going to use it for personal use, set the “Category” to “Other Business,” omit the remaining boxes, and click “Next.”

You have the option to “Skip” through it or “Create a Passkey” and configure it for a safe, simple login.

On the “Create a catalog” screen, select “Not now” if you do not intend to use WhatsApp for commercial purposes.

The WhatsApp Business app will be open with your additional WhatsApp account logged in.

Reverting to Having Just One WhatsApp Account
That’s all there is to using two Android phones with separate WhatsApp accounts. Any of the aforementioned techniques are acceptable. You will have to register each number on the phone you wish to use if you decide to go back to using just one account.

You can return from WhatsApp Business to standard WhatsApp at any time; however, doing so may result in the loss of certain features.

After selecting the account you wish to delete from the Multiple Accounts feature, select WhatsApp Settings from the three dots menu. Go to Settings on WhatsApp and select “Account.”
In the Account Settings, select “Remove account.”
