Believe it or not, Whatsapp has a clone – a modded version of the app that’s called GBWhatsApp. It has a lot of new features, if we are to compare it with the original app.
Not many people know about it and about its amazing features, that go beyond the message usage. It has a SIM storage, other than the app you’ve been accustomed to. It also comes with dual SIM features – features that let you use two WhatsApp numbers on the same device.
So what are the features?
It’s fully customizable
This app lets you customize the interface – something that WhatsApp Messenger does not let you do. You can also download themes that others have used or created and you can also modify the icons and the colors from the Settings menu.
It can freeze connection time
You can control the connection time with this new app. You can freeze it in order for you to stay that exact way, without anybody realizing it once you get back online after that time that was seen under your name. in the meanwhile, you can connect without letting others know your online status. You can hide this for some groups or contacts.
What are the disadvantages?
You can get banned
Before, WhatsApp could ban modded apps. Truth be told, WhatsApp looks more comfortable with its policies even now, when a lot of people use the modded version of the app. But you need to keep in mind that you can get banned if you get GBWhatsApp.
There are no automatic updates
If you’re familiar with GBWhatsApp, then you know its limitations. It’s a well-known fact that the app does not automatically update on its own. You should keep in mind that there might be some new releases, and that you should download them manually.
