- Google is testing the power to clone apps in Android 14.
- This would allow you to have two cases of 1 app with a distinct account signed into every one.
- This characteristic just isn’t energetic in Android 14 DP1, however could be “switched on” in future releases.
Some Android OEMs provide an app cloning characteristic. They have totally different names and barely totally different options, however the core precept is similar: you can have two cases of 1 app, every having a separate account. This could allow you to, for instance, be logged into one social community with two accounts concurrently. All you want to do is open the right app to entry the account you need.
Now, it appears like Google is toying with the thought of baking the same operate proper into Android 14. Thanks to some code sleuthing from Mishaal Rahman at XDA-Developers, we all know that you can entry a developer flag within the first developer preview of Android 14. Flipping this flag activates a “Cloned Apps” characteristic inside Android settings.
From there, it really works very like different companies of this sort. You can create two cases of 1 utility and log into every one with totally different accounts.
