Meta-owned WhatsApp messaging app has introduced several new features this year.

One recent addition is the ‘chat lock’ and ‘message transfers’ and the unique ‘channel’ feature within WhatsApp, making it stand out among social media apps today.

Recently, Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, unveiled a new feature shared in a Facebook post.

It includes a screenshot of WhatsApp's account switching feature, which will soon allow users to manage two WhatsApp accounts within a single app on their phone.

The post's caption reads, "Switch between two accounts on WhatsApp. Soon, you'll be able to have two WhatsApp accounts on one phone within the app."

According to a blog post from Facebook, this feature is particularly useful for those who need to switch between different accounts, such as work and personal accounts.

You no longer have to log out each time, carry two phones, or worry about sending messages from the wrong account.

To enable this, you need to have a phone that supports dual SIM cards or an eSIM.

Simply open the WhatsApp application, go to settings, click on the arrow next to your name, and select ‘Add account.’

This will allow you to manage two separate accounts within the app, as per WhatsApp's official report.

Please note that this feature is currently available to some beta users. To access it, you will need to update the application from the official app store and wait for a few days to gain access to this feature on your Smartphone.
