WhatsApp Plus, also known as WhatsApp+, is possibly the most popular WhatsApp Mods of 2020, although this does not mean that it is the best. With constant updates, the application introduces new features that not even WhatsApp for Android has.
In this article we will discover all the features of WhatsApp Plus, as well as show you its advantages and disadvantages, how it works, how to download and install the latest version or how to update it. Absolutely everything you need to know is here.
What is WhatsApp Plus?
WhatsApp Plus is a modification of WhatsApp for Android, also known as WhatsApp Mods, which adds new privacy features, customization and extras that the official application does not have.
The origins of WhatsApp MODs are in the mythical WhatsApp Plus, the original, developed by Rafalense, and has nothing to do with it, which is developed by Abu Saddam Rifai. In addition, this new WhatsApp+ is based on GBWhatsApp, of which we could say that only the name changes and very little more.
Advantages and Disadvantages of WhatsApp Plus
Advantages of using WhatsApp Plus are many, and is that privacy features are added with which we can do everything, such as become invisible, read without being seen, etc., in addition to being able to customize the application to the extreme with hundreds of options and even themes. Without forgetting the many extra features it also has.
The disadvantages of using such an application are obvious, and is that we could be banned by WhatsApp, something that has not been produced for years, even the application has an anti-baneo function. Another drawback is that not being on Google Play could expose us to possible viruses or malware, another option that has never been given either, no matter how much some ignorant media say.
Privacy Features in WhatsApp Plus
This could be considered the most important section of the application, and is that the options WhatsApp Plus gives us to configure our privacy are really incredible. To access them we have to go to “Button menu (3 vertical points top right) > WhatsAppPlus Setting > Privacy and Security”.
Here we want to give you a personal advice, and is that although it is great, use very carefully, better not use, the Enable Anti-Revoke function, with which we can see the Status deleted from our contacts, because WhatsApp could detect that you are doing “strange things” and ban your account.
The Privacy features of WhatsApp PLUS are:
- Hide Last Seen: Hide our status and we will not appear online.
- Disable Forwarded: Allows you to forward messages without a forwarding label.
- Who can call me?: Specify who can call us.
- Hide view Status: Hide our visit to our contacts.
- Anti-Delete Status: We will be able to see the states removed by our contacts.
- Anti-Delete Messages: Our contacts cannot delete messages that we have deleted.
- Show blue ticks after reply: The ticks will only turn blue when we reply.
In this way we will be able to configure our privacy in a general way, but we will also be able to do it individually, for each contact or group. To do this, in the privacy option, click on Contacts, Groups or Broadcast:
- Hide Blue Ticks: Hide the blue message ticks read to our contacts, we will see theirs.
- Hide Second Tick: Hides the second message tick received from our contacts, we will see theirs.
- Hide Blue Microphone: Hides the blue microphone from our contacts when listening to voice messages
- Hide typing: Hide when we are writing a message.
Customize WhatsApp Plus
Undoubtedly the strong point of the application is the customization that we can apply, as we can customize every last detail of chats, notifications, widgets and anything else, without forgetting the possibility of installing themes.
It would be crazy to explain each customization option, there are hundreds and this article would become gigantic and very heavy, but we will tell you how to customize WhatsApp Plus. If you have any problem or doubt you can write us a comment and we will gladly solve it for you.
To customize, go to “Menu Button (3 vertical dots top right) > WhatsAppPlus Setting”, here you will find the customization settings, in Theme Store, DIY Theme and Color Phone.
Within each customization option you will see the different options you can customize such as headers, chat panels, colors and other buttons. There are many, and you can get a truly custom application to your liking.
And of course, there is the possibility of downloading themes for WhatsApp Plus, there are hundreds, if not thousands, for it you must go to “Menu Button > WhatsAppPlus Setting > Theme Store”. Simply select the topic and click on APPLY.
Extras Functions in WhatsApp Plus
If we go to “menu button > WhatsAppPlus Setting > Universal Settings”, we can set the limit of file upload up to 80 MB, the quality of the images we send, the maximum quality of our States, be able to send original images or increase the time limit of videos in our State to 5 minutes (only those who also have WhatsApp Plus installed will be able to see them in full).
And if we go to Home Screen (menu button > WhatsAppPlus Setting > Home Screen), we can also configure our contacts’ online toasts and even the tone for those toasts.
Another very interesting option is to block access to WhatsApp Plus using a pin or pattern. To do this, from the home screen, click on WhatsApp (top left corner) and choose the type of security you want.
Another extra interesting function that you will like is to leave WhatsApp Plus offline, but without turning off our internet connection. From the main screen you will see the airplane mode icon, with which you can disconnect your WhatsApp.
Other extras are the ability to see the messages that we can highlight, send a message or call any number that we do not have in our agenda (menu button > Message a number) and trim the videos before sending it as Status.
