Twin Apps not working on Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro [Fix]

In this guide, we will show you the steps to fix the issue of Twin Apps not working on the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro. There could be many situations wherein you would want to run two instances of the same app. For example, if you have two phone numbers, then you could run two separate WhatsApp accounts on your device. Likewise, you could also run two Instagram or Facebook accounts simultaneously on your device.

All this could be carried out using the dual apps functionality. Earlier we used to be dependent on third-party apps to get this job done. But now, many OEMs ships this feature by default on their device. When it comes to Asus this feature is known as Twin Apps, which, unfortunately, is not running along the expected lines on its gaming smartphone.

According to many Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro users, the Twin app section appears completely blank, with the message that ‘no supported apps installed’, even though users have quite a few compatible apps already installed. So if you are also getting bugged by this issue, then this guide will make you aware of a nifty workaround to rectify this bug. Follow along.

  1. Create a new text file and paste the command given at the end of this guide into that file:

  2. Now grab hold of the package name of the app that you want to add as a dual app.
  3. Let’s take the example of WhatsApp, whose package name is com.whatsapp.
  4. So go to the <string-array name=”twinapps_required_apps”> if you want to add an app or <string-array name=”twinapps_required_apps_games”> to add a game.
  5. Now add a new line inside that section [make sure to replace com.whatsapp with your app’s/game’s package name]:

  6. Now go to File > Save As and change the Save As type to All Files. Then name the file twinapps.xml and save it.Twin Apps not working on Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro
  7. Then transfer this file to your device’s internal storage.
  8. Now enable USB Debugging on your device and connect it to your PC via a USB cable.
  9. Then download and extract Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC.ADB is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet
  10. Now open Command Prompt inside the platform-tools folder and type in the below command:
    adb shell am startservice -a "asus.intent.action.TWINAPPS_CDN_FILE_UPDATE" -d "file:///sdcard/twinapps.xml" --ei "ACTION" 1 com.asus.twinapps/.TwinAppsService.
  11. This will update the older twinapps.xml file with the newer one [the one that now has WhatsApp]. And with that, the task stands complete.
