    Hi Fewllow OP8T owners.
    As you know the recent change with Whatsapp has made many people moving away from Whatsapp to Signal. This is fantastic news. However it seems that OP8T is not fully up to the job.

    Problem: Support for multiple numbers does not work with Signal Chat.

    Issue: with OP and Oxygen OS we are able to run parallel apps, this applies to WhatsApp, Viber etc. However for some reason Signal is not on the list of apps i can run so i can support both my numbers.

    Is this limitation due to Signal or is it due to OP and Oxygen OS?

    Is there a short term solution to this?

    Given the outcry for what happened with Whatsapp i would say it is very popular now. I would like to understand how and if there is a solution to this and not (here is an app you should try) there is parallel app. :D

    @Navdeep_Malik Number you reported is wrong. Telegram has gained over 25mil new users just in a week and signal have added 7.5m users. In fact Whatsapp has dropped from 7th place down to 23rd place.

    "Signal, the chief recipient of WhatsApp’s absconding user set, gained over 7.5 million global members in the second week of January – 43 times more than the previous week’s increase in users"

    "Signal is the principal beneficiary, not even appearing in the top 1,000 apps in the country on January 6, soaring to the country's most downloaded app by January 9, 2021."

    I am sorry to inform to those of you that solution provided does not work. The parallel space app is not supporting Signal.
