Dual-sim Android smartphones are pretty common these days. In fact, most new Android smartphones house dual-SIM capabilities including - OnePlus 5, Honor 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy On Max, Galaxy J7 Max , Galaxy J7 Pro, Moto G5 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Max 2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, and the list goes on. A pretty common peeve dual-SIM smartphone owners have is the inability to use two different WhatsApp accounts on a single device. The WhatsApp app cannot be installed twice from the Play Store to run two different accounts, but there are two simple workarounds with which this problem can be resolved. Here, we give you a step-by-step guide to getting your two different WhatsApp accounts functional on a dual-SIM handset.
5.7 GBWhatsApp is a third-party app that you can install to get dual WhatsApp accounts working on your device. The app is known to get regular updates from its developers, the last one being in June. To install GBWhatsApp, access and click on the download link from your dual-SIM Android device. This will download the APK on your Android smartphone. After downloading, install the APK on your device.
The Parallel Space app on Play Store is another way of accessing multiple accounts on one device. The app clones and runs multiple app accounts and assigns them different themes for the benefit of the user.
Not all apps can be cloned through Parallel Space though, and some users have told us that this method does not always work for running two WhatsApp accounts. Nevertheless, we tried it and it worked for us. Here is the method to get two WhatsApp accounts running on a single phone through Parallel Space.
Apart from WhatsApp, Parallel Space can also clone apps like PayTM, Flipkart, Amazon, Facebook, Messenger, Uber and more.
So these were the two most effective methods of using two WhatsApp accounts on your dual-SIM device. The apps work similarly on a single SIM smartphone as well, and users just need to make sure they have access to the secondary number for OTP authentications.
