How to use two numbers in WhatsApp at the same time

© NextPit

Having a dual SIM smartphone has its perks but unfortunately users of these devices have to choose just one number to register on WhatsApp...until now! A developer on the XDA Developers forum resolved the issue by creating an application that allows the use of two numbers simultaneously on WhatsApp. Here's how it’s done!

The OGWhatsApp is a modified version of the popular messaging app for Android and it doesn’t require root access to be used. Besides the innovative function allowing you to simultaneously use two numbers, it also lets you to open images in the preview app without having to save them, watch videos (with a player like MXPlayer) without taking up any internal memory, among some other great functions.

To install the application on your dual-SIM device, follow this tutorial:

  • Make a backup of your WhatsApp messages
  • Change the name of the folder /sdcard/WhatsApp on your device to /sdcard/OGWhatsApp.

  • Re-register your original OGWhatsApp account and a new account with the official WhatsApp app.

Two icons are added to your home screen allowing you to now manage your two WhatsApp accounts with two numbers quite easily!

    I tried it... bt it told me that ur client has been changed.
    after that I uninstalled both whatsaap and OGwhatsapp.
    On reinstalling official whatsaap I got backup of my all 6,737 messages.
    But the real problem arouse when I tried to install OGwhatsaap again. same message appeared again. I again uninstalled OG and official whatsaap.
    On reinstalling official whatsaap I got only 1,935 messages recovered.
