Except for premium smartphones like iPhone, Google Pixel, every smartphone sold in India has dual SIM feature. Now when you use a phone with two SIMs, you will probably be making phone calls from both your numbers. You will also be able to send messages from both the numbers. By the way, generally you would not setup two WhatsApp accounts. But do you know that you can also setup two WhatsApp accounts and use both accounts from the same phone? If you have a question in your mind about setting up two WhatsApp accounts on the same phone, then this article will solve your dilemma. There are different ways to do this.

If you have an iPhone, you only have the option of having one account.

Identification is established only through SMS or call, which means a phone with two SIM cards is a must in any case. If you have a dual SIM phone then first check the settings. It is possible that the smartphone company itself has already given an option for dual WhatsApp or in the settings.

How to setup Dual WhatsApp

Many Chinese companies provide you the facility to clone apps which can be used in dual SIM setup. For example, Honor’s EMUI skin has the feature of App Twin. In Xiaomi phones it is known as dual apps. Vivo calls it App Clone and Oppo calls it Clone App. The setup of this feature is slightly different in the phones of every company.

If your phone does not have app cloning facility?
There is no need to worry if your phone app does not support cloning. Even now you can use two WhatsApp accounts. For this also it is necessary to have a dual SIM phone. We looked at some of the most popular methods online. But according to us, Parallel Space is a very effective app.

As the name implies, this app creates a parallel “space” where apps can be installed. This is where cloning of the app takes place. You can use this app like this…


1. First of all, install Parallel Space from Google Play Store.
2. As soon as you open the app, it will take you to the clone app page.
3. After this, select all the apps which you want to clone. After this tap the Add to Parallel Space button.
4. You will then be taken to the parallel space where the app runs on a virtual install on your phone.
5. Now install WhatsApp by following the instructions given above.

Done. Now you will be able to access other WhatsApp accounts through Parallel Space app. The app is free but it comes with advertisements. You can get rid of ads by taking a subscription.
