How to duplicate an app on the OnePlus 3 and 3T with Parallel Apps

The OnePlus 3 (and its brother the 3T) is one of the terminals that have been best rated over the past year, and the chinese manufacturer decided to give more prominence if it is to be starting to give a good support to his then-terminal star. In addition to official updates, gave the users the opportunity to sign up for a beta program to test some new features before anyone else.

With each new release coming some new features more or less interesting, although the really important thing is to fix glitches and make that Oxygen OS, and the phone in general, is better. With the most recent beta, the OnePlus 3 and 3T can now duplicate an app to use two accounts, we’ll explain how to do it.
