How to Activate Dual Messenger Feature?

Last Update date : Feb 03. 2021

Dual Messenger feature allows you flexibility to create two separate accounts for the same messaging App. Only specific models and apps are supported with Dual Messenger.

Once this feature is enabled, you will be able to send and receive messages to/from any one of the two active App accounts basis your preference. A second app icon will appear on the Home screen for easy navigation.

To use both versions of App, make sure you're using separate credentials on the second version of the App. Whether it’s for home or work; you can run the same app for two different accounts quickly and easily.
