Dual Messenger is an incredibly useful tool that lets you run two instances of a messenger service on the same phone. So if you have two Facebook or Telegram accounts or use two phone numbers with WhatsApp, the feature comes in handy. Here’s how you can set up and start using Dual Messenger on your Galaxy phone.

What is Dual Messenger and how does it work?

Dual Messenger is available on all Galaxy phones running One UI. The feature basically works by cloning a messaging app so you can run a second instance of it on your phone. This way, you can use two Facebook or WhatsApp accounts on the same phone, which makes it even more convenient.

Before you start using Dual Messenger, there are a few things to note. You cannot manually add an application; if it does not appear in the list of available apps that can be cloned, you will not be able to use the feature with it. Dual Messenger works with popular messaging services, and you’ll find Facebook, WhatsApp, and Telegram on the list.

Since Dual Messenger basically clones an existing app, you cannot delete that app if you want to use its clone. Deleting the main app also uninstalls the cloned version, so make sure you don’t unintentionally delete the main app.
