Android has some great features that make your life a lot easier, but only some Android brands provide built-in cloning app features like Xiaomi’s. Here’s how to duplicate or clone app on Android easily using third-party apps.
Some people still don’t fully understand the function of the cloning or duplicating app. So, what is it?
Beginner’s Guide on Duplicating or Cloning App on Android
Duplicating or cloning apps means installing the same app with a fresh state of data. The cloned app can be signed in with a new, completely different account/data.
Imagine you’re a digital marketer, you know it’s impossible to sign in to more than 5 Instagram account on the same app. That limitation can be bypassed by cloning or duplicating the Instagram app so you can sign in up to 10 Instagram accounts on two Instagram apps, managing them at the same time.
This cloning/duplicating function eliminates the need to buy a new phone. I mean, you don’t have to buy a new phone only to sign in to a different account on Instagram.
You also don’t have to sign in to them on your browser, with incognito mode.
You also don’t have to sign out and sign in to a different account every time you want to manage a different account.
Therefore, we need a cloning app that can:
- Duplicate/clone apps
- Uninstall closed apps
- Creating shortcuts for cloned apps on your home screen
One of the best cloning apps is Clone App by Arty Products.
