GB WhatsApp allows users to have two WhatsApp accounts on the same mobile phone. So that, users can easily manage different contacts accordingly. The dual GB WhatsApp feature is the best feature you can have by downloading GB WhatsApp.
The root directory of GB WhatsApp is created with the name ‘com.gbwhatsapp’ while for WhatsApp it is separate with the name ‘com.whatsapp’. So, WhatsApp & GB WhatsApp can be used at a time on the same mobile device.
But, How can we do that, in this descriptive guide you will learn all possible ways in easy-to-do steps. So, let’s start.
Method 1: GB WhatsApp Clone Method
Official Way for Cloning GB WhatsApp
Most Android mobiles like Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO, Huawei, and Vivo give an app clone feature as an inbuilt function. You can clone your Apps and have two accounts simultaneously on one Android phone.
To enable this function:
- Go to your mobile settings
- Scroll down to “Apps”
- Click on Apps
- There will be an option “App clone”; tap on it
- There will be different Apps arranged alphabetically; Scroll down and click on GBWhatsApp
- A clone will start downloading
- When the clone has downloaded, click on it and install
- Complete the installation process and enjoy GB features on the second number too.
Before applying the above steps, you must have already GB WhatsApp installed. If it is not yet, download it now. This feature may not be present in the mobile phone of some users, they can use the below methods that suit them best.
Third-Party App Method
App cloner Apps
Many apps like “Dual Space”, “Multiple Space”, “Parallel Space”, and “App Cloner” are available that can be installed directly from the Play Store. These apps after installation on your Android facilitate you to make a clone of any app. By using the Multiple Space app, you can create as many apps as you want.
These apps allow users to have clones of GB on mobile devices. Those users whose mobile does not have an App clone feature can install and enjoy the perks of GB by using it.
Method 2: Alternative GB WhatsApp Method
Many WhatsApp mods are present on the web that can be downloaded and used as an alternative to WhatsApp Messenger with different numbers on the same mobile. All of them have the same basic features plus few unique features.
WhatsApp Blue’s latest APK is the only WhatsApp Mod that has an inbuilt feature of two or more accounts at a time. You can switch from one account to another at any time directly from the home screen by clicking on the account switching icon. Two accounts mean two numbers.
Some of the best WA mods among others include GB WhatsApp Pro, Aero WhatsApp, FM WhatsApp, YO WhatsApp, etc. WhatsApp Plus can’t be used if you have official WhatsApp installed on your Android. WA Plus root directory has the same name as the original WhatsApp, so both contradict and can’t be used at a time.
WhatsApp mods give amazing features but are never recommended; It is best to use only WhatsApp Messenger or WhatsApp Business for chatting and gossiping with your friends. You can use two WhatsApp accounts safely by using WhatsApp by Meta. Clone WhatsApp messenger from settings, now you will have two apps of original WhatsApp, plus you can install WhatsApp Business for the third account.
How to Install GB WhatsApp on 2 Devices with the Same Number
If you have a common number for you and your wife, you can use one number to enjoy GB features at a time. You can use the same number for two different GB WhatsApps on the same or different Android phones, iOS phones, or Laptop following the simple following steps:
On your first device:
- Download GBWhatsApp on one of your Android phones
- Install it by following all installation steps one by one
- Select language > Click on ‘Agree & Continue’ > Enter mobile number > enter OTP > verify
- Give access to your media
- Enter name > Done
- Use it for a day or two to play safer
On your second device:
- Now, on your second mobile device (Android or iOS), download the same GBWhatsApp apk
- Open it > select language > OK > new window will open to enter a phone number
- Don’t enter your phone number here; instead, click on the three dots at the top right corner
- Tap on ‘link a device’ > QR code will appear on the screen
- Now, go to your first mobile > Open GB WhatsApp > > linked devices
- QR code scanner will open
- Scan the QR code present on your second mobile using the QR scanner from the first mobile
- After a second or two, your first mobile GB will link to the second one
The method explained above is also known as the WhatsApp web method because using the same method of scanning we can connect our mobile WhatsApp to our PC. Both GBWhatsApp will have the same interface and chats showing on the screen. You can use any of your mobiles to reply to your loved ones. This dual account on GB WhatsApp feature is amazing.
Benefits of Dual GBWhatsApp
Having two GB WhatsApp on the same mobile allows users to sort contact lists accordingly. Users need not have any second device for the second account of GB WhatsApp. Everything can be done with just a click.
By using two accounts of GB WhatsApp on the same mobile, we can personalize each for different purposes, i.e., one for personal use and the other for Business dealings. There will be no mess of the chats and we will be able to manage each of them easily.
Separate directories are created for each GB WhatsApp which makes it possible to have separate backup files for each account. These Backups can later be downloaded and restored to another device. Amazing, Nah!
Dual GBWA accounts Problems
Dual WhatsApp GB not working:
Sometimes, GB WhatsApp gives an error of not working on mobile devices. This is possible because of the cache stored in the app directory files. This error can be sorted out easily by clearing the cache from the App’s settings.
No option for 2nd account:
Generally, it has no option to register for a second account. Second account registration is only possible if you have turned ON dual app settings or have installed an app cloner. To use a dual GB WhatsApp account, follow the above steps.
How do I link 2 WhatsApp accounts?
You can do so by the linked devices feature of GB WhatsApp. Scan the QR code shown on the second device while the installation process from the first device.
Can WhatsApp GB have two accounts?
Yes, we can have two accounts for GB WhatsApp on the same mobile using an App Cloner app like “ Parallel Space” or “App Cloner”. After installing these, you will have dual GB WhatsApp accounts at a time.
Is dual GB WhatsApp possible?
Yes, it is possible to have two WhatsApp accounts at a time. One is original WhatsApp and the other is GB. GB WhatsApp’s root directory folder is created separately from WhatsApp Messenger. However, you may get a ban issue sometime. But no problem, these temporary or permanent ban issues can be resolved.
Two accounts on the same mobile is not a feature of GB WhatsApp. You need to install WhatsApp Blue for this feature.
Having dual GB WhatsApp is good to go. You need not have many mobile phones for different WhatsApp accounts. Mobile’s inbuilt clone feature, installing clone apps from Play Store, and use of alternative WhatsApp mods are the few best methods that anyone can have. I personally prefer to recommend you shift from GB to Blue WhatsApp. Blue WhatsApp gives multiple accounts feature as an inbuilt function, you need not any other app to install or method to apply.
This feature can be used in the same way on all other devices like iPhones, PC, or MAC. Open your Android emulator installed on your PC and apply any method you like from above.
