The latest experience is being tested globally on iOS, Android, and the web.

To log in and create new accounts and profiles across the two social media platforms, users can now also make use of the new account registration and login flow that makes the process efficient. For this purpose, new users can create an account on either of the two social apps and then use that account to create new ones. You can also use login information from one app to access the other app, granted that the accounts are in the same Accounts Center. This feature is also being tested globally but only on iOS, and Android.
