Life gets busy, and sometimes having just one messaging account isn't enough. Maybe you have a personal and work email, or you have private and public social media accounts. Now, with Dual Messenger, you can have two separate accounts saved in one app.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model. 

Get Dual Messenger

Using Dual messenger is very simple. Once it's set up, you can begin organizing your accounts all in one place.

From Settings, search for and select Dual Messenger. Tap Dual Messenger again, and then tap the switch next to the desired available app. Tap Install, and then review the Disclaimer. If you agree, tap Confirm. Tap Next, and then tap Yes. Navigate to and open the newly installed version of the app - it will have the Dual Messenger symbol on its icon. Then, enter your account information and start using Dual Messenger.

Use separate contacts

To enhance your Dual messenger experience, you can separate the contact list in your second app and make it so only your desired contacts appear.

From Settings, search for and select Dual Messenger. Tap Dual Messenger again, and then tap Use separate contacts list. Tap the switch to turn it on. Tap Select contacts, and then tap Add. Select your contact(s), and then tap Done.
