There are several unofficial and fake versions of WhatsApp that are being used more than the official version in some countries
WhatsApp is one of the most popular social media applications around the world and is the most popular app in African countries.
WhatsApp keeps launching new features more often to provide feasible experiences to the users.
Recent reports say that unofficial versions have more users than other social media applications in some areas.
These unofficial versions are providing more distinct features than the official versions. GBWhatsApp enables the users to see users’ status even if the users have deleted it. Delete option ultimately becomes useless in that case.
WhatsApp had tried to block users of unofficial versions, but it failed. Unofficial versions include GBWhatsApp, FMWhatsApp, YoWhatsApp and so on. These versions are widely used in countries such as Nigeria, South Africa, and Kenya.
Facebook owned Whatsapp officially released the ‘Dark Mode’ for Android and IOS platforms which will reduce eye strain in low light environments.
In a blog post the social media app said: “When designing dark mode we spent time researching and experimenting with a focus on two particular areas” readability and information hierarchy.
“Readability: When choosing colors, we wanted to minimize eye fatigue and use colors that are closer to the system defaults on iPhone and Android respectively, it said.
