Dual Messenger is a standard feature of the latest Android Oreo 8.0 which basically creates two copies of an app on a single device, its basically for the social networking apps. Using the feature you can log in to two different accounts on the same device. However, it doesn’t support apps that already support multiple user accounts such as the Instagram.

To access Dual Messenger, open the Settings on your phone, go to the Advanced Features menu, then tap Dual Messenger. Here you can enable the feature for a particular app, simply use the toggle next to it to enable the feature for that app. After enabling the feature you should now see a cloned version of the app in the app drawer with a chain icon in the bottom-right corner.
