Samsung Dual Messenger (latest Samsung devices)

- Go to Settings.
- Find Advanced Features and tap on it.
- In the Advanced Features, menu finds Dual Messenger and tap on it.
- You will find the list of all platforms. Tap on WhatsApp to install.
- All done. You can find the second WhatsApp next to the first WhatsApp.
If you can’t find the option, then your device might not be compatible with Dual Messenger feature. Read more about Dual Messenger on Samsung’s official website.

Samsung Secure Folder (Knox)
Secure Folder previously called Samsung Knox is a different kind feature. It allows you to use a separate Android interface. It creates an entirely new Android software for you where you can add and install all the apps available on Google Play. Samsung developed Knox so the users can separate home and work tasks, but you can use it for any reason. It is available on most of the Galaxy devices including and after S6.

Use Two WhatsApp Accounts on Xiaomi (no app needed)

Parallel Space (Nokia, HTC, LG, Motorolla, OPPO, Huawei etc. – third-party app)
If you are not using Samsung or Xiaomi, then you will need a third party app. Parallel Space is an app which allows you to clone the apps installed on your device. The app has over 100 million installs, and it is fully compatible with Android Pie. To use dual WhatsApp on Android, download the app and open it.
If you are using one of the latest devices, then you might need to install 64Bit Support. The app will notify if 64Bit is required. To add the apps, open the app and tap on Start. The list with all the apps will come up. Tap on WhatsApp and tap on Add. It would take a few seconds and then you can tap on WhatsApp to open the app. Parallel Space requires over ten types of permissions from the user to work correctly.
