The number of Android devices out there is overwhelming, and so is the number of WhatsApp users. The chat app is installed on more than a billion devices across the globe, however, not everyone knows the goodies of GBWhatsApp, a special version of WhatsApp.
If you have not heard of GBWhatsApp before, you are in the right place. Today, we’ll shed more light on this WhatsApp clone, covering things like how to download as well as install it on Android devices.
WhatsApp’s huge following is due to its amazing set of features as well as its simple-to-use nature. However, GBWhatsApp takes everything you know about this Facebook-owned chat app to the next level. You don’t need to root your phone in order to take advantage of the great features on show.
Of the huge list of features you get on GBWhatsApp, the best include the ability to hide your last seen, second tick, blue ticks, typing a message and many other things. The new version, which is also based on the latest version of WhatsApp, allows you to copy the status of other people to the phone’s clipboard. Unlike the original version, GBWhatsApp lets you broadcast messages to up to 600 people.
You can play around with almost everything on GBWhatsApp, be it the color of the main home screen icon, the size of texts, the font type, background appearances and so much. These changes are helped by the support for third-party themes, which are designed by different developers. For the photogenic crew, GBWhatsApp lets you share more than 90 photos at once, unlike the original version which caps this limit at 10 photos.
It gets even sweeter with using GBWhatsApp as users of this chat app can add a passcode to the app without the need of a third-party application. Furthermore, you don’t need to uninstall the original WhatsApp in order to install GBWhatsApp and there is no order to follow when installing the apps. This means that those with dual-SIM phones can have two WhatsApp accounts installed on the same phone, with each app signed in using a different phone number as per the two SIM cards.
How to download and install GBWhatsApp
When it gets down to downloading and installing GBWhatsApp, it is very easy. All you need is check the web using your favorite browser and search for GBWhatsApp. Download the APK file on your phone and leave it there. Go to your phone’s Settings app and hit the Security option. This should open up more options where one of them is “Unknown sources.” Check the box against this option and go back to the downloaded GBWhatsApp APK file. This option allows installation of Android apps that have been downloaded outside the Google Play Store. Tap on the APK to begin the installation process.
The process is the same, where you have to provide your phone number for the confirmation code to be sent to. If on a dual-SIM phone, use the second SIM card’s number. For those on a single-SIM phone, you can still use the same phone number.
