Since smartphones have evolved a lot all this years, dual sim phones are the new trend. As you have 2 phone numbers, you might have wished of using 2 WhatsApp accounts on your same smartphone. Different WhatsApp account, allows you to maintain anonymity from other WhatsApp contacts. Most people want their friends, Family and work, on different numbers. If it’s not about 2 WhatsApp, you might have thought of hiding your last seen or blue ticks; While you could still see others last seen as well as blue ticks? Well, GBWhatsApp is the solution of all!
GB WhatsApp is an Android application which allows the users to enjoy WhatsApp Plus features and install multiple WhatsApp on the same Android smartphone. Unfortunately, this version of WhatsApp is not available on Play store as its the same WhatsApp application but with added features which are unofficial. If you remember the legendary “WhatsApp Plus”, GB WhatsApp is the same WhatsApp Plus, but with a different name.
So, what does GB WhatsApp provides and why you must try it out? Let’s checkout all the features and advantages.

GBWhatsApp has some of the coolest features that you always wanted in the original WhatsApp. It allows you to hide last seen(While you can see others), hide blue ticks(while you can see others), disable Status view (So that no one would know, you viewed their status), change themes, send images without any compression, hide second tick, hide typing status and stay “Always online”. I guess this is enough to install GBWhatsapp. You can run both Official Whatsapp & WhatsApp Plus together without facing any issue.
GB WhatsApp allows you to theme different components of the original WhatsApp. If you don’t like the original Color of WhatsApp, you can change it, shows yours and sender’s profile image in the chat.

Also, you can disable voice calls so that you won’t receive any voice calls from your friends. Not finding the right Gif? You can change the Gif Provider from the settings. You an select Tenor or Giphy for best Gifs.
If you use Applocker just to hide your WhatsApp, well you can uninstall it now. App lockers can tricked or forced stopped from settings and one can easily access your WhatsApp. GBWhatsApp comes with an inbuilt App locker which allows you to keep your desired password for your WhatsApp. Once cannot access your WhatsApp without the password as the locker is inbuilt with the App. If you try to stop the locker, WhatsApp won’t start.
