WhatsApp is undeniably the most popular chat app on the planet today. The chat service offers a simple free and instant chatting platform with no annoying ads.
Since the application’s breakthrough following Facebook’s acquisition in 2014, different developers have created mods for the app but many of them have not been a success.
In that sea of failure, a clone app has been built successfully and it’s known as GBWhatsApp. This mod has defied all odds and is outstanding in the way it dispenses features. The biggest problem with most mods is that they do not get updated whose upshot is poor performance accompanied by unending bugs and crashes. The case is different for GBWhatsApp which gets updates as frequently as nobody could ever imagine.
Now that it has stood its ground, the obvious next question is: how does it compare with the original WhatsApp. Well, being a clone it works and looks exactly as usual WhatsApp only that its features are more advanced. Here is how the two measure up:
The original popular chat app is available on several platforms which include iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Phone, Windows and Mac and on the web. In contrast, GBWhatsApp is only available for Android phones as at now which means you cannot use the app on an iPhone.
WhatsApp is readily available for download in Google Play Store, Windows Store, App Store and other device stores in two versions-the main channel and a beta testing version. On its side, GBWhatsApp is unofficial and is only available as an APK file on the web.
WhatsApp has a massive user base of over 1.1 billion active users and is the leading instant messaging platform across the globe. The clone, in contrast, has just gathered a handful users though the most popular among WhatsApp mods on the internet today.
Both messengers support the loved face-to-face chat technology. GBWhatsApp latest update – version 5.15 – has enhanced the performance of this feature which now works seamlessly on the modified version. The emulation also includes the recently added WhatsApp features including two-step verification, Image Editing, and Video Streaming among others.
Image sharing bandwidth
WhatsApp has limits to some features like you can only send a maximum of 10 images at once, group members cannot exceed 256, status must be 139 characters and below and you can’t have it empty. GBWhatsApp allows a larger bandwidth to these features, for instance, status can span up to 250 characters and you can send up to 90 photos at ago.
GBWhatsApp gives you more control over your app, you can choose from a rich Theme Store, customize your own themes or browse the net from within the app for more pictures.
In brief, there are several features, additions, and tricks on GBWhatsApp that can be best realized if a user has the app installed on their devices. You can actually do that without uninstalling your loved original WhatsApp because the two can work harmoniously.
