According to a WABetalnfo report, WhatsApp is currently working on its multi-account feature that enables users to add a second account directly within the WhatsApp settings. So you won't need a separate app or device to access your additional account.
However, this multi-account feature will allow you to seamlessly switch between two different accounts on the same device. No more logging in and out or juggling between apps. What's more, is that this feature keeps your conversations and notifications neatly separated.
Alongside the multi-account updates, WhatsApp is revamping the settings interface. The chat app is giving its settings a fresh, modern look that promises a more user-friendly experience. Navigating through the app's options will become smoother and more intuitive. Also, the profile tab is also getting a makeover, now conveniently located in your chat list for easy access.
This exciting package of updates, including the multi-account feature and the redesigned settings interface, is currently available to beta testers who have installed the latest WhatsApp beta for Android. The good news is that it will be rolling out to more users in the coming days.
