Here’s some good news. Meta has just announced that you’ll soon be able to use multiple accounts on WhatsApp, and this is a good news if you’re on a phone with double SIM. 

If you remember, the social media giant experimented with this feature on several beta testers back in August.

This is a welcome change for many users who have been using workarounds, such as carrying two phones or using third-party apps like on several Chinese Android smartphones, to manage multiple accounts.

“What’s better than having a WhatsApp account? Well, of course it’s having two,” says WhatsApp in the official blog announcement.
