Once the law is scammed, unlike other devices with Android or iOS operating system, Huawei's original launcher, EMUI 5.0, allows us to clone all the applications you have on your device, even WhatsApp.

What is a Huawei Twin app?

Huawei's sister app allows you to log into an app with two different accounts at the same time. When this feature is enabled, the twin apps are displayed on the main screen. Currently, third party launchers do not support this feature.

To explain it another way, the applications you clone will be stored in a different space, although when you update the original WhatsApp application, its sister application will also be updated.

Twin App is a feature factory preset for Huawei Android devices and that it only works correctly using the original launcher, that is EMUI 5.0 o superiore.

It is the only launcher at the moment that has this level of customization and creates virtual copies of the same application that has different configurations, because it creates them in a second space on the device.

How to create two accounts in WhatsApp on my Huawei

In order to clone an application, you need to get started by enabling the “Twin App” function on your mobile device. To do this, start with your device settings. You can access it from the application menu or from the shortcut you have on the home screen by sliding your finger down.

Navigate through the list of options in the settings menu and go to Applications. In the section above, where you have the settings to customize them, click on " Twin App ". As you can see, to the right of this element you have the legend “Not enabled”.

This configuration is already preset in the factory so that if you want to duplicate any app you have to enable this section. When you enter this section, you will have a text explaining what the sister App is and below the applications that support this function.

After duplicating the applications, you need to enter each one and configure them as you did in the beginning when you installed the original app for the first time. Clone or twin apps will be stored in the app drawer, if you have one, or on your desktop.

To differentiate the original app from its clone, you will see that the one you cloned has the number two under the original icon. In the case of applications such as Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp, you must log in with a different account than the one you used in the original app.

Keep in mind that the clone apps work the same way as the original ones, and in fact your Android device will frequently ask you which of the two accounts you want to use before completing the action.

Another important fact that you should keep in mind is that sister apps usually don't work properly with other launchers that aren't Huawei's original ones. For example, if you use Launcher for Android, when you try to open the sister app, it will continue to open the original app.

Now that you know how to have two WhatsApp accounts on your Huawei device, configure your device and make the most of it.
