After dual sim phones, people are eagerly looking for a way to run multi-account apps on Android like dual WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and more. Not only Dual Sim Android phone users but people also keep searching for a way to access multi-account app for iPhone. However, on the computer and browser people can access multiple accounts of different social service at the same time but in the phones, it still bit difficult to manage multiple accounts. That’s why, if you want to use multiple account app then either you have to download some third party app like Parallel space app or your smartphone manufacturer should have given this facility inbuilt in the mobile OS like OnePlus has, which known as Parallel Apps.
A couple of months back the Instagram has updated a feature in their app that allows multiple users on one Instagram account. Means under the Instagram profile settings there is an option called “Add account“ that helps the users to add multiple accounts to a single Instagram app. After that, the user can switch multiple accounts of Instagram without cloning or by using any third-party app like Paralled space. But this is not possible with other apps like Whatsapp and Facebook, and you have to use clone apps; If you want to separate your business and personal life or to get the benefits of Dual SIM smartphone.
Previously people do the cloning of apps by modifying its signature but that was pretty geeky and hard and not worked when you got the security update for the Android OS. However, now everything is pretty much straightforward with help of Parallel Space app which allows you to run two instances of the same app without rooting Android or Jailbreaking the iPhone /iOS.
Before diving into the tutorial part let me introduce the Parallel space and its features. It is the app that is available for Android and iPhone that can run two instances of any installed app by cloning them. Basically, it creates an isolated environment where it clones and installed the apps already present on your phones such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, Viver, Hike, Sanopchat, Instagram, Clash of Clans (COC) or any other app or game installed on your smartphone without root access. It is available two versions one is parallel space and other is parallel space lite. Now you might be thinking what is the difference between them.
Difference Between-Parallel space lite vs Parallel space
Both the Parallel space lite and Parallel Space are developed by the same company but marketed one as the full version and other as the lite version that’s may true hypothetically but in real world usage and functionality, both are exactly same. I have installed and used both the apps but there is no difference in terms of the performance and battery usage. Even the size after installing of the Parallel space and parallel space lite is almost same, have a look at the screenshot given below.
The developing company of this app said that the Lite version of the Parallel space is the optimized version of the main Parallel app but we didn’t find that in our test. Both are same from the interface, settings, size and in usage. The only benefit I can see is you can install 3 Whatsapp instead of 2 WhatsApp in 1 iPhone or Android or any other app instances. Example: one in the phone, one in the Parallel space and one in Paralled space lite.
