Some Android smartphone manufacturers offer a dedicated dual/parallel/clone apps feature that allows users to use two versions of one app, e.g. B. WhatsApp accounts. Once activated, you will see two different WhatsApp app icons in your app drawer to access the respective accounts. Here’s how to enable this setting on different Android phones:

On Samsung phones running on One UI, this feature is available as Dual Messenger. Just navigate to Settings > Advanced Features > Dual Messenger and turn on the toggle for whatsapp to enable it.
On Xiaomi or Poco phones with MIUI, the feature is found as Dual Apps. To use it, navigate to Settings > Apps > Dual apps and turn on the switch for WhatsApp to use its dual account feature.

Once you have created a clone/dual/parallel app with the native dual apps feature on your phone, you can tap on it to configure a new WhatsApp account with a different number, running at the same time as your existing WhatsApp account can be used.
Free Third-Party Apps to Use Two WhatsApp Accounts (Android)

Bonus Tip: Use GBWhatsApp for Dual WhatsApp
GBWhatsApp is another popular alternative that has been around for Android for a while. It is a clone app that offers some extra features over the regular WhatsApp but comes with a huge risk for data security. As it is managed by private developers, we do not recommend using it to create a second WhatsApp account for work/profession with sensitive information. However, you can try it out on your phone at your own risk by sideloading Google’s APK file if you’re curious.
