WhatsApp has become the world’s most popular as well as the most loved messenger of all times. It’s speed, ease of use and emojis (of course) impress us all. Here I’ll talk about WhatsApp for Android. What if you get a graphically better version of it? The one that you can customize? Well, most of you know it, it’s WhatsApp+ found at XDA, but those who don’t, here’s an introduction for you:
Now also supported for Nokia X and XL devices

Let me show you the difference between the normal WhatsApp and WhatsApp+ :

So, WhatsApp+ is basically a modified version of the original WhatsApp built for Android. It adds extra options to customize the user interface with the colours of your choice, transparency is also supported. From the original modder:

Basically it is a customizable WhatsApp where you can change lots of colours, sizes, and many other visual MODs
In addition you can increase upload media limit (stock limit is 16Mb) to send large music files or videos
You can increase quality of pictures sent (by default resolution is decreased quite a lot)
You can share music just with one click
You can add contact profile pictures to their chats
You can hide contact profile pictures and show phonebook pictures (in chat screen)
Built-in theme viewer and downloader. Check WhatsApp+ users themes online and apply theme if you like
And more to come…

So you wanna get it? Let’s begin…

How to install WhatsApp+ on your Android device:

1. Backup your old chats:

Follow this step only if your chats are important for you. A detailed guide is provided by WhatsApp here: http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/android/23756533

2. Uninstall official WhatsApp

3. Download WhatsApp+: 

Whatsapp+ v6.26

4. Install the downloaded apk.

 In case you are unaware: How To Install An App From Non-Play Store Source or From An Apk File?

Also, enable to automatically check for updates by clicking menu button > PLUS > Other mods > Auto Updates

After installation you’re ready to set up your account. Open WhatsApp+ and get going…!

5. If you get an error while verifying your number:

Just uninstall WhatsApp+ and install original WhatsApp from the Play Store.

Open it, set up your account and chat with a few people.

Uninstall WhatsApp and install WhatsApp+ again. This should fix any verification problems that you get.

Start themeing by pressing the menu key > click ‘PLUS’ . There are a number of options to customize the looks of your WhatsApp:

    im getting speakers problem if i m downloading whtsapp +

    • More than a million people are using it. There must be some other flaw, check again.

  • Valentina

    When i install it it says app already exist…. Even wen i have uninstalled the previous one :’|

  • Valentina

    Tried but didn’t make any difference

  • shadab

    bhai how can I verify my number…?

    • Install normal whatsapp and then install whatsapp+ over it.

  • suchi

    do it support android version 2.1??

    • I am not sure. The best option is to try and let us know.

  • Melwyn

    if you are unable to install and use it visit this page: http://whatsapp-plus.net/faqs.php

  • sakshi

    Wen I click d option hide online status it asks to download an app fm playstore in d name of donation which costs rs189….should I download it?

    • If you want to donate the developers, go ahead. It’s safe. I hope that’s what you wanted to ask. 🙂

    • You don’t need that option now to hide your last seen. It has now added into WhatsApp and you can enable it from Settings > Account > Privacy

      You can still buy that donation app if you want to appreciate the work of the talented developer who made WhatsApp+ which is so beautiful and awesome.

  • This is better than original whatsapp…. loving the full screen mode in nexus devices..

    • Keep loving us and other developers. 🙂

    I cant install wasssup+ on my lenovo vibe z..i noticed mybe there a problem with phone security..do u have a solution?thnx..

    • Please provide us with more details. Like what error do you get? Are you doing it the right way?

    • There won’t be any problem with phone’s security. You are not able to install because Android blocks installation of apps from sources other then Play Store because other sources can provide malicious apps.
      So if you want to use WhatsApp+ you will have to trust me and enable installation of apps from sources other then Play Store. You can disable it again after installation is done but it is recommended that you don’t do it because then you will again have trouble in updating it.

      Read this to understand how to enable installation of apps from sources other then Play Store: http://readmenow.in/install-an-app-from-non-play-store-source/

    Hi there,

    I’ve installed whatsapp+ for iPhone from cydia and its doing a great job for stealth mode and many features, but since I activated stealth mode I’m not getting notification preview on my phone lock screen, I’m only getting a sound and the message preview flashing for a second and then disappear, moreover I’m getting the sound notification for more than three or four times for one whatsapp message, can you suggest what could be the issue? thanks for your help

    • We are really not sure about Cydia and Whatsapp but you might want to check the notifications settings of your iPhone and Whatsapp both. Let us know if it is fixed.

  • Amanda

    One of my whatsapp conversation from a friend disappeared entirely. I have not deleted it nor edited . Is there a feature in Whatsapp Plus that allows you to delete conversations from the server and also the contact from the other party’s phone? I know once I clear a conversation, the thread is removed but the contact details remain and is moved to the bottom of the list. In this case, the contact profile for this friend is removed as well as if he and I never made contact. Please clarify how this is possible.

  • Leandro de Mello

    Inspite of the group limit being 100 i am unable to add after 51. It says max group limit reached.

    • I guess only 50 people are allowed in Whatsapp groups.

      • Leandro de Mello

        Mr. Harsh. WhatsApp group limit is 50. On the otherhand WhatsApp plus group limit is 100. And I have added 51 people on adding the 52nd person it says Max participation limit reached. So if the group limit is 100 why cant i add more then 51.
        Or is there something else that i need to do so that i can add more then 51

        • Please keep in mind that we are not he developers of WhatsApp+. We have just written this article to bring it to you. So you can’t report such errors/bugs here and get help. Try sending an email to the developer of WA+, go to PLUS settings through the app, you have an option there to send emails to him. Thanks!

          • Leandro de Mello

            Thank you Vishal. This is what i wanted to know 🙂

    Hey can we see who checked my whatsapp profile from whatsapp +? If yes ..how? …or is there any other application for this? … I heard from ppl tht there is … so any help plz?!

    • WhatsApp takes care of users privacy. So there is no official feature to do so. We are not sure about using third party applications as they pose a risk of Malware.

    • Sarvesh Kumar Thapa

      No. You cant
