WhatsApp is a top app for instant messaging that dominates the global smartphone niche thanks to its simple and easy to use interface.
On the other hand, WhatsApp Plus is a remodeled version of WhatsApp and with it there come more features as well as functionalities.
Even though some still use the original WhatsApp due to its lightweight and simplicity, WhatsApp Plus comes with greater advantages than the former. Here are the differences between these two.
Color of WhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus Icons
The major notable difference between these two versions is that WhatsApp has a green icon while WhatsApp Plus comes with a blue icon. However, the good thing with WhatsApp Plus is that you can easily change the color as well as the design of the icon once you’ve installed it. This is not applicable in WhatsApp.
Themes and Display
Another difference arises from the display of these two apps where WhatsApp Plus comes with more than 700 themes you can use to customize the appearance of the app. Again, this is something you won’t get on WhatsApp.
Last Seen Status
One problem with WhatsApp is that your contacts are able to see the last time you visited the application, something that affected the privacy of many. However, you can get rid of this privacy issue by downloading the latest WhatsApp Plus which allows you to hide your last seen status. The downside of this move is that you will not be able to see the online status of your friends as well. This feature has been included in the latest version of the green-themed WhatsApp.
Users of WhatsApp can upload up to 12MB of multimedia files. Thus, it is impossible to share files like video clips which have larger sizes. On the other hand, WhatsApp Plus offers users more as they can share files of up to 50MB, thus allowing for more flexibility. In addition, files will be sent in their original standard/quality rather than be compressed and thus reduce resolution like the case of WhatsApp.
From the above, WhatsApp Plus clearly offers users with features and functionalities than WhatsApp. Other features included in WhatsApp Plus that you won’t find on WhatsApp include changing of font sizes and color, background color as well as clearing data directly from the main menu. In essence, WhatsApp Plus allows users to perform more customizations on the application than with WhatsApp.
