In case you are confused about using Whatsapp or Whatsapp plus, read ahead and find out whether you must make the switch. There is a lot of speculation going on about how this new version is better than the original good old Whatsapp, there has been a confusion as whether the app is legal or not, but whatever is the case, it works quite well. However, to install this new app, the old version of Whatsapp needs to be uninstalled. To make a difference, the new version has a blue icon as opposed to the original green icon. Some of the features and functions of Whatsapp plus have been noted below:
Addition Of Visual Themes
Even though we all love Whatsapp we often complain about its monotonous appearance which cannot be customized; this problem has been taken care of by the new version. Users can completely change the look of this cross-platform free messenger with the use of the styles or visual theme feature. Free themes can be directly downloaded from Whatsapp and there are a whopping 700 themes available to choose from; these can easily be sorted by name, date of installation, version, etc. Something like this adds a nice zing to the conversations, where not only the background can be changed, but the colors of the texts and bars can be changed too!
The reason why people have swathed to an app like Hike, WeChat, LINE etc. is because they have much better emoticons. The new app ensures its users can easily find the right emoticon to express their emotions. However, the bummer is that only those who use Whatsapp plus will be able to see these added emoticons in their conversations. Those who use the classic Whatsapp will receive these emoticons as a question mark sign.
Hiding The Last Scene
This feature is a boon and a bane, which means many people have loved and hated it. In the new app, you will be able to hide your “last seen” which is a great advantage. But, the original Whatsapp too has the same feature now, so this can be a blow to the newer version.
Change The Size Limit Of Sending Files
If you were bummed out of Whatsapp because you could not send those long videos and other files to your friends then fret not! The new version allows the user to change the limit of the file size from 2 MB to 50 MB. Also, there is an additional feature which enables the user to maintain the quality of the images/videos/files which are being sent via Whatsapp plus.
It Is Much More Customisable
Since the new version is very customisable it is being used
quite frequently. People are switching to this new app, because it has a number of better features which enables the users to customize everything. There are around 6 menus to choose from so the users can edit away and customize the app to their heart’s desire.
The Only Disadvantage
Now that Whatsapp has included the voice call feature, it will become difficult for users to choose. On one side there is the freedom to customize while on the other side there is the ability to make free calls. This is the one thing which can confuse the users, however if you are using voice call apps such as LINE or Viber, and do not intend to use Whatsapp for making voice calls then, you can switch to the newer version without a second thought. The fact that you can make changes to just about everything will give a new spark to your Whatsapp conversations.
