Apart from Android Nougat features, the EMUI 5.0 also brings several tweaks to the UI like changes to Home-screen Interface, Notification Shade, App Drawer, Recent Apps, and more. The company also includes a cool new feature called “App Twin” which allows users to log-in and use two different accounts at the same time on a single device. However, the feature is currently compatible with only WhatsApp and Facebook application. We could expect company soon makes this feature to work with other applications too.
