Dual Messenger as standard app

The much-loved Samsung feature is getting a revamp in Oreo. With Android 8.0 Oreo beta, Dual Messenger has now a standard feature on its own, still allowing users to clone social networking or messenger apps that do not handle two accounts at the same time, such as Facebook, Skype, Snapchat and Messenger, among many others.

Pin or snooze notification

Tapping the Clear All button on the notifications shade completely removes all the notifications sitting in there. With the pin or snooze notification, users can make exemptions to some notifications by pinning it so even if the Clear all option is tapped, the pinned notification will remain in place.
