There are over 1.1 billion people currently using WhatsApp. However, very few people are aware of the other clone versions of the app, namely GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus.
In this article, we’ll dwell further into the former app, which like the latter, is based on the original version but adds some amazing tweaks here and there that make it a much better option to have on your phone. It gets even better as you can still keep your original app on your phone, especially for those who use phones with two SIM cards. In short, you can have both SIM cards on WhatsApp using the same device. Cool huh!
Once you start using GBWhatsApp, you won’t stop – that’s one thing for sure. The app comes with plenty of amazing features and works perfectly with all Android devices. In case you don’t feel like keeping the original app, you will still be able to use the same number as before as well as continue your conversations from where you left them. The app is basically an advanced version of WhatsApp, offering features such as the ability to hide second grey and blue ticks, hide last seen, hide the “typing…” alert in chats and lots of other things.
If the current appearance of WhatsApp is nothing you like, GBWhatsApp is the best option for you. In addition to changing the background of the entire app, you can also assign each chat a different background. There are also volumes of customized themes that you can use on your app to make it more appealing to the eye.
The latest version of GBWhatsApp is based on the newest version of Facebook’s WhatsApp. Other than coming in with fixes to bugs that affected the sharing of videos, the new clone app also lets you copy the status of other contacts on the phone’s clipboard as well as include up to 600 people in a broadcast message.
Unlike the original WhatsApp where you can only use up to 139 characters in a status, GBWhatsApp lets you use up to 255 characters. For those who enjoy taking lots of photos and sometimes sharing all of them becomes a problem, this app will let you share up to 90 images as opposed to 10 images on WhatsApp.
If you are worried about your privacy, GBWhatsApp has a feature that lets you lock your chats without the need of a third-party app. There are lots of customizations you can do on this app, things that the original app is not close to offering anytime soon.
How to install GBWhatsApp APK
GBWhatsApp is not available for download via the Google Play Store, but this doesn’t mean it’s not safe. But still, you can get it via third-party sources. Once you download it, go to your phone’s Security settings and check the box against the “Unknown sources option.” This lets you install apps that are not from the Play Store, just like GBWhatsApp APK in this case.
When done, head to the downloaded APK file and tap on it to start the installation. Follow the on-screen instructions to setup the app on your phone. A verification code will be sent to the number you entered. Use this code to get things up and running.
