How to use two separate accounts for the same messenger app

Last Update Date : Nov 09. 2018

Previously the Dual messenger was available to add an additional messenger app by long pressing the app icon and selecting add another app.  

This concept has been changed, as other deep shortcut links have been added instead of dual app installing option from Oreo OS.

As there is no shortcut to add the additional messenger app, this can be found at : settings/advanced features/Dual Messenger  > then select the applicable app to install again with a different account.
