If you tap on your profile picture longer on WhatsApp, you can open a new menu. We explain what's behind it.
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 creating a second account is particularly easy with a simple trick. If you long press and hold on your profile picture, a pop-up menu will open where you can easily add another account (Source: Netzwelt.de). By clicking on the profile picture again, you can switch between accounts easily.
To set up a second account, it is necessary to have an additional phone number. In addition, the smartphone used must support multi-SIM or eSIM. However, so far this feature seems to be only available for Android users, while iOS users will probably have to be patient.
