WhatsApp is a platform with over 1.5 billion users, but being the most used messenger app, it does not offer to add another account. Almost every brand releases dual SIM phones, and it can be hard for users to manage two WhatsApp accounts. Until we don’t have a built-in way, we have other options. The blog post covers 3 ways t0 dual WhatsApp on any popular Android device.

All the mentioned brands have built-in features. Follow the text to find your brand and learn how to activate the second WhatsApp on one of the above.

Xiaomi: Settings -> Dual Apps and tap on it -> WhatsApp

Oppo: Settings -> Clone Apps

Vivo: Settings -> App clone

Asus: Settings -> Twin Apps

Huawei: Settings -> App Twin

Dual WhatsApp (Nokia, HTC, LG / Motorolla)

Those brands do not support the feature of using the dual WhatsApp. But, we can use a third-party app. Dual Space is an app cloner. Parallel Space is another one, but Parallel Space doesn’t support Android 10 and 11. You might also need 64-Bit support of Dual Space, depending on your device.

Open the app and add apps by tapping on the add button. Find WhatsApp in the apps menu and import it. Once imported, you are free to use the second WhatsApp on your phone. Make sure to allow permissions to get the notifications.

  1. Hi, well, to be honest, neither parallel space nore Dual space are working under Android 10. Parallel space came back to me and wrote that there is big issue, will take a long time. Any idea what I could use?

  2. Hi, I recently bought One plus Nord last week. I’m not able to find or activate the first widget for the “parallel what’s app”… The widget options for parallel what’s app are WA camera and 1×1 WA chat but not main list of unread messages widget. How do Ito get it ? Will be grateful for your advice!


  3. Whenever I go to whatsapp on secure folder it’s aks to verify ..so I did it …then everything is OK.. but when go to whatsapp without secure folder it’s say u were logged out

  4. Works great, but one question. When I try and share a web address URL to WhatsApp it automatically sends it from my second WhatsApp account, which is a private account I do not want to be public to everyone. How can I force “share” to send from my main WhatsApp?
