It seems that Facebook Messenger is finally supporting multiple account sign-ins. However, this new feature is only available on Android devices and we’re not sure yet when the developers will release it for other operating systems.
We remind you that this came shortly after Facebook introduced this feature to Instagram, but, for some reason, that update wasn’t released for iOS. We’re not sure why the developers have decided to update only the Android version of Facebook while the iOS and other operating systems have been left behind.
Anyway, if you own an Android device, then you should know that you will be able to access multiple accounts while using the new Facebook version. In order to do this, you will need to go to the Facebook’s Settings and select “Accounts” section.
Facebook has mentioned that it has released this feature for the situation where multiple people share a single device, such as a tablet. In addition, it is great for parents who sometimes let their kids to use Facebook from their mobile devices, but don’t think that they should have their own device yet.
When you will want to add a new account for the first time, you will need to enter the username and the password, but the settings will also allow for the password to be required each time someone will try to switch between Facebook accounts. At the same time, messages for different accounts will be kept completely separate and the content of any incoming message on an inactive account will not be displayed at all, but you will be able to see the number of notifications.
We’re not sure when this new option will be available for Facebook on iOS, but we’re pretty sure that the developers are already working on it.
