How to use dual Whatsapp in a single phone

Almost all android phones today come with support for dual-SIM card slots, allowing users to use two different numbers in a single device. However, officially you cannot use two Whatsapp accounts in one smartphone. However, companies like Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo, Oppo, Huawei and Honor now offer ‘Dual Apps’ or ‘Dual Mode’ feature (the name may differ from brand to brand) which allows users to run two different accounts of the same chat app. 

This means ypu need not carry two smartphones just to use two WhatsApp accounts. Wondering how? Here’s a ready-to-use guide.
First, let’s start with the name and location every manufacturer uses for this feature:

Samsung: Dual Messanger 
Settings > Advance features > Dual Messanger

Xiaomi (MIUI): Dual apps
Settings > Dual Apps

Oppo: Clone Apps
Settings > Clone Apps

Vivo: App clone
Settings > App clone

Asus: Twin apps

Huawei and Honor: App Twin

Now, how to use Dual WhatApp feature on your smartphone.

2.Select the app you want to duplicate (in this case select WhatsApp)
3.Wait for the process to finish.
4.Now, head to the home screen and tap on the second WhatsApp logo you see in your app launcher

However, there are a few phones that do not come with dual app features such as Stock Android and Android One devices. For these, there are several apps such as Parallel, Dual App Wizard, DoubbleApp and more available on Google Play Store. Users can dust download these apps to run two accounts of the same Chat app on their phones.
