How to Install the Same App Multiple Times on Android

Whatever your reason is for wanting an instance of another app on your phone, here's how to install two different versions of the same app in Android and how to save/share cloned apps in Android.

If you're a person with a strong online presence and several accounts on social networks like Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram etc, you will definitely have the need to maintain more than one account on your phone, and multiple accounts require multiple logins.

Unlike apps like the Gmail app for Android that allows login into multiple accounts, there are several others that do not.

Having to login into each account can be time wasting, where some login attempts may even be considered as suspicious by the network, which therefore brings the need to conveniently login on a separate app but from the same Android device.

So, how can you clone WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter apps and others in Android?

I'll tell you.

With the use of applications that can clone apps on Android or create an instance of apps and games in Android. Given below is a list of some that are quite effective in duplicating apps in Android.

Best App Cloner For Android

Here is a list of the best app cloners for Android and are not limited to the ones listed below as you can find several others on Google Play store. Since it's apps we'll be using, rooting for your Android is not required before this can work.

For your first app,

Parallel Space

With Parallel space, you can duplicate an app and sign into individual apps at the same time from your Android. When the original app is updated, the cloned app also gets updated.

Multitasking between the same apps is made possible with parallel space where you can switch quickly between the original and the newly duplicated app.

After download,

  • Install the app on your device and launch it. 
  • A list of existing apps on your device will be shown to you, 
  • Click on 'Add to Parallel space', select the app you want to clone and it will be replicated.

You can access the cloned app directly from the Parallel space app, and the original app from your device's app drawer.

Lucky Patcher

You can duplicate apps on your phone using this app as well. Lucky patcher creates an apk file of the original app, where you can decide to install on the device again or send to another device.

After download,

  • Install the app and launch it
  • You'll see a list of already installed apps on your phone, select the app you want to duplicate.
  • Goto the app's 'Tools' menu, 
  • Then from the drop-down menu choose the option 'Clone application'
  • You'll be presented with a dialog box that will request you either go to the cloned file or install the clone file.

And that's it.

App Cloner

As the name implies, this app duplicates most applications on your Android phone. Unlike Parallel space, you can only clone certain apps since not just any app can be cloned by it.

The duplicated apps run as well as the original app without glitches.

AppCloner comes with free and paid version where the paid version allows you to change the icons and the color of cloned apps to separate them from the original apps.
