Do you have different records for an application yet your Android telephone will just allow you to utilize one? No concerns, there’s an element on some Android telephones that allows you to run numerous duplicates of an application.
Along these lines, you can make a second duplicate of your most loved application, add your optional record to it, and utilize that application as though it’s the first application you have on your telephone.
You don’t require an outsider application to make clones of your introduced applications. Here’s the way you get copying your Android applications.
Run Multiple Copies of an App on Android
To make it understood, the component to make various duplicates of an application is just accessible on certain Android gadgets. You should discover this element on Samsung, Xiaomi, and OnePlus telephones.
In the event that your telephone doesn’t have this element, you can still run different examples of your Android applications utilizing an outsider application.
Have you ever needed to run various duplicates of a specific Android application simultaneously? Indeed, it’s conceivable.
While every maker has its own name for the component – it’s called Dual Messenger on Samsung, for example – it works basically a similar regardless of the telephone.
Here’s the way to begin. We’ve utilized an OnePlus telephone running Android 10 for this demo:
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll down, tap Utilities, and tap Parallel Apps.
- You’ll see a list of apps that you can make copies of—not every app is supported.
- Find the app you want to clone, and turn its toggle to the On position.
- Your phone will create and add a copy of your selected app to your app drawer.
Your newly created app won’t carry over any of your existing settings. This gives you a chance to customize this app in a completely different way than the original app.
You’re now ready to use your secondary account with the cloned app.
Where Does Android Save the Data for Cloned Apps?
Your Android phone doesn’t save the data for your cloned apps in the same directory as the original apps. However, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find that data.
On a OnePlus phone, you’ll find the data for your cloned apps in the Parallel Apps storage section. You can access this storage using an Android file manager.
What Are the Limitations to Cloning Apps on Android?
A major limitation to cloning apps is that you can’t clone all your Android apps. There are some apps, like Google Chrome, that you can’t yet make duplicates for.
Basically, you can only make copies of the apps that you see on the Parallel Apps screen. If an app isn’t listed there, you can’t make a copy for it.
Disable Multiple Copies of an App on Android
Removing your cloned apps is as easy as this:
- Head into Settings > Utilities > Parallel Apps.
- Find the app you want to delete the duplicate for, and turn its toggle to the Off position.
Your phone will remove the app duplicate, as well as all its data. This won’t have any impact on the original copy of the app. You can continue to use it like you’ve been doing.
Using Dual Accounts in Android Apps
Running multiple instances of an app lets you use multiple accounts for those apps on your phone. With this feature now built into your system, you don’t need to go hunting for app-cloning tools. You can now do that by simply toggling a switch on your Android device, as shown above.
