how to access second WhatsApp account on a Samsung

Post by tsolignani » 15 Aug 2019 09:35

I have a note 9 and wrote several flows to automate whatsapp (love automagic!).

On the Samsung's dual sim phones, you can have two whatsapps instances, one for each number, using a sort of - I guess - virtualization system provided by Samsung itselfs, called dual messenger.

If you, say, share something with the android system share, you can choose WhatsApp, then you are faced with two whatsapps and you have to pick the one you would like to use.

Sometimes I would need to use the second WhatsApp instance, but I have no idea how to.

Anyone who happened to handle that or any hint?

Thank you.

The intent or action usually hidden and overlayed by the OS itself. So it seems the only way is to use Control UI. You can simulate the tap and choose the second account instead the primary one.
