Do you want to use more than just one WhatsApp account? Conveniently type longer chats on the PC? Or not always interrupt the currently active app for incoming chats? You can’t do that with the original WhatsApp, but you can with the root apps presented here!
Your WhatsApp account is always linked to your mobile phone number. Changing the number on WhatsApp is possible, but not that easy either. WhatsApp does not plan to use multiple accounts with the once installed app. However, there are numerous users who want to use WhatsApp with more than one number or with more than one account. A common use case would be WhatsApp on a dual SIM mobile phone that can be reached under two numbers. In such a case, you can go to WhatsMore to grab.
So that you don’t misunderstand the principle of WhatsMore: With the app, you are not active under two WhatsApp accounts at the same time. The app switches “only” with a click or automatically in the background between two or more WhatsApp accounts. You will only receive messages that you have been sent to an account that is currently inactive when it becomes active again on a regular basis.
To do this, WhatsMore backs up a WhatsApp account that has already been set up, including all your messages, and then completely resets WhatsApp. Back in WhatsApp, set up the application again – ideally with your second SIM card in the device. If everything is correct again, save the second account via WhatsMore. From now on you switch back and forth between your WhatsApp accounts via WhatsMore.
WhatsMore can be installed free of charge from the Play Store. However, the app then displays advertising banners and wants to be activated. You will only receive the necessary code when you tap on an ad – we will subtract two stars from the app for this measure. With a chargeable key turn off advertising and manage up to five WhatsApp accounts.

Are you a “heavy user” of WhatsApp? Chat with different contacts anytime, anywhere. Then you are probably bothered by the fact that you always have to leave the current application – including games – to chat. Switching from chat to chat is also tedious, you always need several clicks to switch between your WhatsApp contacts. “Chat heads”, as introduced by Facebook with its home app, offer a solution here; they can also be used with WhatsApp.
Place your most important contacts as “floating” above all apps Chat heads at the edge of the display. Use drag-and-drop to move the heads to where they do not interfere, in the app menu you select which contacts should be displayed. When a new message arrives, a small excerpt appears, which you can use to call up the chat without completely leaving the app that is currently running. After sending, you will immediately return to your previous app.

Are you one of those people who keep forgetting an important birthday or anniversary? With the Scheduler This no longer happens to you, at least with your WhatsApp contacts. The scheduler automatically sends pre-created messages to selected contacts based on rules you have created. The messages can be sent at a specific time or regularly every day, every week or even every year.
The scheduler app is limited to pure text, images or position data are left out. The message text cannot be individually adapted again and again using text modules. The “good morning” you send to your partner every day is therefore always the same – and the marmot greets you every day.

Dashclock WhatsApp Extension
The DashClock widget is quite popular with Android users who want to see an overview of everything important right on the cell phone’s lock screen. The lockscreen widget for devices with at least Android 4.2 can be individually configured and shows, for example, the current weather, the number of your unread SMS and much more. What is missing, however, is support for the currently most popular messaging app: WhatsApp.
However, this can easily be retrofitted using the DashClock extension; you can find this in the Play Store with DashClock WhatsApp Extension and DashClock WhatsApp two apps. The first works from Android 4.2, but needs root rights. DashClock WhatsApp also works without this, but the extension requires at least Android 4.3. No matter which app you use, in the end you always have your WhatsApp messages in view with the DashClock widget and the corresponding extension.

2Lines for WhatsApp
Also 2Lines for WhatsApp is used to switch between several WhatsApp accounts. Technically, 2Lines works in a similar way to the WhatsMore discussed above. The app closes WhatsApp, saves the existing data and resets WhatsApp so that you can create another account. When switching between accounts, 2Lines then simply exchanges the app data again so that you can seamlessly zap between your accounts.
In contrast to WhatsMore, 2Lines does not have a rotation mode. You will only be informed about messages in your currently inactive accounts if you actively switch to them. In return, the app is much simpler, and it also dispenses with a dubious activation by clicking on an advertising banner. However, the displayed advertising cannot be deactivated even for a small fee.
