WhatsApp Plus is the best alternative for WhatsApp, being a modified and improved version of this cool application. Unfortunately, WhatsApp’s developers didn’t react very well when they started to lose their users, who preferred to uninstall the official application and try this application’s services. Zuckerberg, the new owner of WhatsApp, asked all stores to remove the intruder, and most of them have complied with this request, but the illegal application can be downloaded from its website and from other websites, as well. And the latest version is 1.85 and brought a few changes.
The story behind WhatsApp Plus’ success is simple. In 2012, a Spanish developer known under the name of Rafalense released a modified version of WhatsApp with additional features, allowing users to customize the background image, change the color, font and the size limit on attached audio and video files was increased from 16MB to 50MB. The users have over 750 themes they can choose from, and most of them were created by individual developers who offered them for free, or they set a price for their “artworks”. In addition, WhatsApp Plus has more stickers and emoticons, and if you have a Google Hangouts account, you’ll recognize many of the emoticons from there.
This unofficial application had some serious problems back in January, when WhatsApp’s developers managed to find a way to block the users who migrated to WhatsApp Plus, banning them for 24 hours, then for 48 hours. This desperate measure was taken in order to convince them to return to their first love, but the users waited Rafalense’s next move and when a ban-free version was released, their dream came true.
Currently, the users can download the 1.85 APK from various websites such as apk2day or whatsapp-plus-download.apk4file and here are the new features that come with it:
– the users can hide their last seen status
– the users can hide talks
– many new themes were added
– the users have a password for talks status.
– now that WhatsApp supports Voice Calling for its Android users, WhatsApp Plus came with this feature as well
– this version exceed ban excellently.
