WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp Tips and Trick for 2020

Official Plus, the makers of WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp (not the one by GB Mods that was shut down) and OG WhatsApp released a significant update: WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp version 7.35.

The changelog contained some essential updates like a status splitter, anti delete status, blue tick after reply, custom call blocker, send 100 images at once etc., that looked nice till I got to the part that says “some features has been removed and no longer supported.”

I had already upgraded and was shocked to see the new app looking plain. My friends using WhatsApp Plus and OG WhatsApp soon contacted me. That is why I had to write a new tutorial.

The new WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp version 7.35 has been revamped with new designs and options. That means the old article on WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp version tips and tricks is reserved for those who have not updated.

In case you are new, WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp are modified WhatsApp that offers more features than the original app. I have been using the mods since 2016 when I got my first Infinix Smartphone

WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp Tips and Tricks (for version 7.35 and hopefully beyond)

Here we will discuss new tips and tricks for WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and OG WhatsApp version 7.35. While I will be writing with examples from GB WhatsApp, the steps remain the same for WhatsApp Plus and OG WhatsApp.

If I mention GB settings, then in WhatsApp Plus it will be Plus Settings while OG WhatsApp will have OG Settings. I might also use them interchangeably.

The tips will be divided into the main chatting area tips and GB Settings tips. The chatting area tips are usually meant to be applied for just one or two chats or persons, while the GB Settings tips affect the whole app.
