GBWhatsApp have officially closed shop and will no longer give any further updates to the app. GBWhatsApp is not an official app that you can find on the Google Play Store, and it’s Android users were side-loading it from the developer website.
But it was shocking as GBWhatsapp made an official announcement on their Telegram handle to shut down its service with no further developments expected. It seems they may have faced a lot of warnings, legal copyright infringement lawsuits and threats from WhatsApp, but however, the shut down statement says:
We are really sorry to announce that we have completely stopped the development of GBWhatsApp.Consequently, due to the fact that the developers behind GBWhatsApp are still the same developers behind the newer versions of WhatsApp+ and GBWhatsApp3, the two clients are also expected to shutdown.
It was a great time with all you people.
Sorry for the Inconvenience. Hence we have Closed all the Site, Social Accounts and Everything.
There will be no further Development.
So, GodzGeneral advice you to switch to the official WhatsApp app for now and wait for other developers to bring up another WhatsApp client.
