WhatsApp, owned by Meta, is apparently sending out a new feature to its Android beta testers. The feature, as reported by WaBetaInfo, allows WhatsApp users to add additional accounts to the popular messaging service.
The newly added multi-account functionality in the newest beta version includes an account switcher that allows users to switch between the primary account associated with the smartphone and other WhatsApp accounts.
According to the source, the multi-account capability is currently available to a small group of beta testers who have updated to WhatsApp beta for Android version 2.23.17.8. It is expected to be made available to a larger user base in the coming weeks.
When enabled, WhatsApp will display a little downward-pointing arrow icon in the settings menu next to the QR code. Following that, a card containing the primary account and a “Add account” button will appear. Users can incorporate an account registered on another device by tapping this button, and recent messages will be synchronised with their phone.
The article also includes a screenshot of the functionality, which shows the popup card, which also functions as an account switcher, displaying the phone number associated with the relevant WhatsApp account. Along with the profile photo and username, this feature will allow users to easily distinguish various accounts. The functionality was first spotted in development back in June.
WhatsApp previously launched “companion mode,” which allowed users to set up an iPhone or Android smartphone as a secondary device, allowing them to use a single account across several devices. Nonetheless, users are now limited to using only one account on a single device. Some Android devices, such as Samsung smartphones, allow for WhatsApp “cloning” to include a second account.
The multi-account functionality, which is only available to select beta testers, streamlines access to personal and professional chats (provided separate accounts are used), giving a handy mechanism. According to feature tracker data, notifications and discussions will be displayed independently.
