Tencent has announced the roll-out of a new update to the company’s flagship chatting software, WeChat, which will allow users to toggle between multiple accounts from the same device.

Users of the app's latest iOS update, Version 6.6.2, will be able to select the feature by navigating to the ‘Settings’ page and tapping ‘Toggle Accounts,’ whereupon they will be prompted to add an additional set of log-in information.

On subsequent sign-ins, users will be able to toggle seamlessly between user profiles, without the need to input additional log-in information down the line.

In addition to the account-switching feature, the company promises a more streamlined interface for the app’s ‘Discover’ portal.

The new feature will surely be a boon to those of us who would prefer to keep our personal chats separate from our commercial ventures or work personas, as well as family members who share a single device.
