Recently, WhatsApp confirmed that it now attends to the needs of more than 1.3 billion people on a monthly basis, figures that no other messaging app in history has ever managed.
In these regions that WhatsApp commands these huge fan bases, the kind of smartphones that are sold there come with support for two SIM cards. Popularly known as dual-SIM phones, these handsets allow users to insert and set up two networks in one phone, something you won’t easily find in developed markets like the U.S.
Given that setting up WhatsApp needs your phone number, many of those who enjoy the services of this good app in these markets that are dominated by dual-SIM phones often find themselves having to rely on only one phone number for their WhatsApp communications. But if you need to have both phone numbers active on the chat app via the same phone, you are in the right place.
The name of this modified version is GBWhatsApp. Simply download the app to your phone like you’d do with any other app that is not available in the Play Store. You’ll get the APK version, which weighs about 48MB, with the latest version carrying build number 5.80, which is based on WhatsApp version 2.17.223.
You also have the option of checking out the GBWhatsApp Settings option where you can play around with lots of the app’s settings, including changing the main icon color so that you can easily differentiate between the two versions of WhatsApp installed on your phone. Note that unlike the standard version that will automatically get updates from the Google Play Store, you’ll have to occasionally check the official GBWhatsApp website for any updates. If any, just download the latest APK version and install it. You won’t be required to set it up all over again, instead, the updates will be applied on top of the current installation while keeping your original or rather current settings.
