WhatsApp is a popular messaging app that has been adding new features to its list at a rapid pace. The latest feature that is soon to be added is the ability to create multiple user profiles on a single account. This feature will allow users to create separate profiles for their friends and office colleagues, even if they have a single account.
WhatsApp to Allow Multiple User Profiles on a Single Account
The new feature will enable users to hide several profile elements from their contacts, including profile photo, last seen, online status, etc. This way, users can choose what to show to each group of people in their contacts. The alternate profile feature will be available right under privacy settings within the app.
However, this option is still in development and isn’t available to beta testers yet. It will roll out for closed beta testing at first before it becomes available on the public beta platform. After that, it should finally arrive in its stable variant.
Account switching was introduced globally in WhatsApp recently, which serves as an excellent interim solution until alternate profiles become functional. Account switching enables the use of multiple WhatsApp accounts on a single smartphone, eliminating the necessity for workarounds like app cloning or maintaining a secondary smartphone solely for the purpose of accessing another WhatsApp account.
