WhatsApp is one of the most popular social messaging apps of this day and age ever since it was launched years ago. Also, we have known that the application was brought by Facebook a few years ago to make the application even better and add more features to the app and the popular social media company has done exactly that. Ever since WhatsApp was bought and taken over by Facebook, the app has seen many new features and the user base of the application has been growing exponentially day by day. According to the latest numbers that were published officially by WhatsApp, we know that the app has been used to send 4 Billion and more messages every day and there are 100 Million active monthly users for the app which is a huge number in its own.
However, one thing that we have known about WhatsApp which is the most popular feature of sorts is ever since the application was launched, they had a no-ads policy on its platform which means that the company will not show ads anywhere on its platform. Also, WhatsApp had promised that even though the application has been bought by Facebook, the new company will also not place ads on WhatsApp and this has been the case till now as well.
This means that the company does not earn a penny from advertising and the only revenue for the application is through its user base which is pretty massive now but we have known that the application was struggling to earn money in the early days. Although the app has become massively popular and has replaced conventional text messaging in countries like India, the application still has its disadvantages that are mostly ignored but the one feature that many WhatsApp users have been requesting from quite some time is the ability to use two WhatsApp accounts on the same device.
Now, WhatsApp has its reasons for not allowing two WhatsApp apps on the same phone and the company also does not have the feature to run two WhatsApp accounts in the same app. However, the users of WhatsApp want this feature as they are using Dual SIM smartphones and most of them now have two different accounts for different numbers.
We have known that WhatsApp is not going to provide this ability anytime soon. Thus, there have been many WhatsApp MODs in the market that provide the similar ability but most of this apps lack some of the functionality.
Now, we have found the perfect WhatsApp MOD named as GBWhatsApp which is developed by Has.007 who is a Senior Member of XDA. As far as GBWhatsApp, WhatsApp’s most popular MOD is concerned, the application has now reached v6.0 which is based on WhatsApp v2.17.351 which is the most recent version of WhatsApp. Also, we mentioned further about the ability to run Dual WhatsApp apps on the single device and we are going to share the tutorial to do this down below so if you are one of the users who wants two WhatsApp apps on your phone and read the entire guide from below.
