It’s finally here! Dual-SIM support for WhatsApp!...Kind of.
For those of us who use dual-SIM smartphones, the struggle to use two WhatsApp accounts on the same phone has been real. We’ve had to rely on cumbersome third-party apps to do the job. Not anymore!
WhatsApp has released a business version of their messaging app, WhatsApp Business, that can peacefully co-exist with WhatsApp Messenger on the same device! The two apps must be registered to different numbers though, but this is the perfect solution for those solopreneurs and other business people who have dual-SIM phones with one number for work and the other for “play”.
As its name suggests, WhatsApp Business is for commercial use so this may not be a viable solution for people who have two personal numbers on the same phone. But this is probably WhatsApp’s most requested feature, so I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that WhatsApp is likely to address this at some point in the future. In any case, WhatsApp Business is a massive leap in the right direction.
While this isn't a full review, I've been using the app for about a day now and so far, it's great! WhatsApp Business is available now on Android with iOS to follow at a later date.
