The latest Android 8.0 Oreo brings native Parallel apps feature in OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, Oneplus 3 and Oneplus 3T. The latest parallel apps feature in OnePlus enables users to run a cloned version of apps already installed into the phone with different accounts and credentials. It means you can run dual WhatsApp, dual Facebook, dual Instagram and other apps in the dual configuration. It helps the power users to separate their business and personal accounts on different Android apps.

Using Parallel Apps in Android phone is not a new concept and the Google Play store is full of such apps those allow to run two apps on the same smartphone. Before Oneplus 5, so many other smartphone manufacturers already in the market with parallel apps feature such as Xiaomi, Honor, Vivo, Oppo etc. Recently Samsung has also brought the same features as a part of the Oreo update.
