WhatsApp for Android may soon let you switch accounts on the same device

On the heels of the official release of Companion Mode — letting you use a single account on up to four devices — comes a report that multi-account support is in the works for the Android app.

Multi-account support “would allow you to switch between profiles on the same device” according to a report from WABetaInfo (via Engadget). This feature should be released for the WhatsApp beta for Android in a future update. It would work in a similar fashion to another Meta-owned social media site Instagram, “with a pop-up at the bottom of your app showing current accounts and the option to add new ones.”

All accounts, both old and new, would be stored on your device and can be logged out of at any point. It seems that this isn’t a business-only feature either, according to WABetaInfo, and if true means that it’ll roll out to all users once out of beta. Currently, there’s no information on a timetable for when that will happen, however.

WhatsApp has been knocking it out of the park lately
