WhatsApp’s press service reported that they are introducing the ability to log in to two accounts at the same time. Now you won’t need to log out of your account every time, carry two phones with you, or worry about sending messages from the wrong record. The new feature will be useful for switching between a work and personal account.

To set up a second account, you’ll need a second phone number and a SIM card, or a phone that accepts multiple SIMs or an eSIM. Simply open your WhatsApp settings, click the arrow next to your name, and then click “Add Account.” You can manage your privacy and notification settings on each account.

Recall that WhatsApp is going to launch an application for the iPad.
