WhatsApp remains a crucial messaging application for both personal and professional communication with its myriad feature updates making the lives of its user easier each day.
This time around, the Meta-owned platform has finally decided to introduce a much-needed feature, the absence of which has been felt for years.
The messaging platform is set to offer its users a multi-account system, allowing them to log into more than one account simultaneously, WABetaInfo reported.
WhatsApp Business beta began working on the account-switching feature, as per reports received in June. The feature has finally made its way to some select testers after the beta version 184.108.40.206 is visible on the Google Play Store.
"It is possible to add a new account by tapping the arrow icon next to the QR code button (visible on the top-right of the app's settings screen). In the same menu, it’s also possible to switch to a different account. When you add a new account, it stays on your device until you decide to log out," WABetaInfo stated in its report.
Through this latest feature, users can keep all their chats in one place including private conversations, professional correspondence, and other communications.
"It keeps your conversations separate, along with notifications, and lets you change between accounts without needing different devices or parallel apps," WABetaInfo mentioned.
The WhatsApp update website also makes it simple for users to use multiple accounts on the same device, instead of creating different setups for different accounts separately for each. "You can use one app on your main device to access and switch between your accounts."
