I’ve two WhatsApp accounts; while one is for loved ones, the other one is for my clients and colleagues. More often than not, I have to switch between these accounts to communicate with all of them. When I’m working on the computer, I prefer using the WhatsApp web to chat with friends a bit more comfortably. Recently, I got caught between two stools and found it a bit cumbersome to switch between my personal and professional accounts. Luckily, I soon stumbled upon a smart hack that helped me use multiple WhatsApp accounts on the desktop with ease.
If you also like using WhatsApp Web on your Mac or Windows PC, you would really appreciate this trick. Let me show you how it works!
