In the future, if you press longer on your WhatsApp profile picture, a new menu will open. We explain its purpose here.
In recent months, WhatsApp has repeatedly rolled out new functions aimed at making life easier for messaging users. For example, we’re working on new features that are activated by long-pressing the send button or double-tapping the message.
WhatsApp also introduced the ability to use two accounts on one smartphone a few months ago – a feature that many users have been waiting for for some time.
WhatsApp: Open a second account by long pressing on the profile picture
What many people may not know is that opening a second account is very easy with a little trick. If you tap and hold on your profile picture, it will open a pop-up menu where you can add a second account (via: Netzwelt.de). You can then easily switch between accounts by tapping on the profile picture.
In order to set up a second account, users always need a second phone number. In addition, the smartphone to be used must support multi-SIM or eSIM. However, the feature so far seems to be only available to Android users. iOS users may have to be patient.
