Use dual WhatsApp on Nokia, HTC, LG, Motorolla, etc. (Dual Space)
Those brands do not support any feature to use the dual WhatsApp without an app. We are using the Dual Space app as it supports Android 10. You might also need 64-Bit support depending on your device.
Open the app and add apps by tapping on the add button. Find WhatsApp and import. Once imported, you are free to use the second WhatsApp in one phone. Make sure to allow the permissions to get the notifications.
