Hello everyone, in today’s tutorial, you are going to learn how to create multiple Whatsapp accounts on Android Lollipop and Android 6 (Marshmallows) without using any third-party app. Whatsapp is the most popular instant messaging app; that’s why people love to know the latest Whatsapp tips and tricks. In the earlier tutorial, I have shared a post to use three Whatsapp accounts on Android without root. However, that tutorial needs to install a third-party application on your phone, and it may create a chance for blocking your account.
Android Lollipop is one of the most popular mobile operating systems that comes with most smartphones out of the box. Marshmallow is the latest one and many Android phones are already opting to this new OS. In today’s tutorial, I am going to use one of the popular features of Lollipop and Marshmallow to create multiple accounts on WhatsApp. Hopefully, When Android N comes out later this year, this trick will also work on it too. Let’s get started.
How to Use Multiple Accounts on Android Lollipop & Marshmallow
Multiple accounts feature was first introduced on Android lollipop and now available on Marshmallows. With this feature, users are allowed to create multiple guest accounts on their devices. One account is for Administrator and other accounts for guests. Admin can control all the guest accounts.
Step 1: Create a Guest Account
In your Android Lollipop mobile expand the notification bar. You’ll see your mobile’s profile picture at the top of the bar. Tap on that picture and you’ll see the Users of your device. Tap on Add user to create a new user account on your mobile.
Alternatively, go to you phone’s Settings and open User’s menu. Here you can also create a guest user account.
Step 2: Install Whatsapp
After creating a new user, tap on the new user profile to login with that account. Now your mobile has two different accounts. On the new user account, go to Google Play Store and install Whatsapp messenger.
Put another mobile number on the new Whatsapp account and verify that number. Now your device has two different Whatsapp accounts.
In this way, you can use multiple Whatsapp accounts on Android lollipop and marshmallow without any external application. However, you can’t use those accounts at a time. Every time you need to switch in between your accounts to access different Whatsapp.
