WhatsApp is one of the leading platforms in its field; We use it every day and we know it by heart. But for some it is not enough and they prefer to do more than the app itself allows, hence there are alternatives to download on Android as GBWhatsApp (also known as GB WhatsApp or WhatsApp GB), a "mod" that has dozens of new features.
Of course, it is an app outside WhatsApp and therefore it is not official, hence its users have had problems using it. However, in its last version an anti-banning method has been developed so that the company cannot suspend the accounts of those who use GBWhatsApp.
How is GBWhatsApp different from the standard WhatsApp?
Mainly, it gives you access to those advantages that you have always wanted to use but WhatsApp has not left you. Among the most prominent are:
- Hide «Online»: Other users will never see if you have the app open or not.
- Hide the blue tick: Your contacts will not see if you have read the messages, but t s.
- Hide the "Writing": When you activate this option, others will not see when you are writing, you will.
- Hide the «Recording audio»: In the same way, they will not see when you are recording but you are the others.
- Adjust the maximum file size: You can send documents up to 50MB.
- Photos and videos without compression: Send photos and videos in their original quality (up to 50MB), skipping the WhatsApp compression.
- Send multiple contacts: You can share several contacts at once in a chat.
- Customization: It is possible to download themes, change sources, add shortcuts …
Recall that one of the clauses of use of WhatsApp specifies that the use of modified apps that use its messaging service is not allowed, leading to the possible suspension of the account that is detected making use of a similar alternative.
However, in version 7 of GB WhatsApp it seems that this detection of the company has been overcome, thus avoiding the banning of the accounts. Eye, we already warn you that we do not put our hand in the fire for anyone. Use this app at your own risk, we are not responsible.

As the GBWhatsApp developer announces in the tweet above, sand has stopped the development of the app. The application may still work, but not receive support from your computer.
This could mean that, if WhatsApp in the future manages to evade the anti-banning system of GBWhatsApp, users will be exposed to the decisions that the company deems appropriate.
