GBWhatsApp still remains to be one of the most sought-after modified WhatsApp software in the free app market today. It comes with great messaging, privacy, and customization features that the regular WhatsApp mobile software could not.
Now that GBWhatsApp gears towards their upcoming update, users can see that it’s now becoming better than ever. In fact, the app’s official Facebook page has been teasing users with what’s in store for the upcoming release.
Switching from WhatsApp to GBWhatsApp
Users know very well how migrating from the regular WhatsApp to GBWhatsApp can be a crucial process. The hassle of setting up your account to customizing the app based on your preference takes quite the time and effort for some.
The most important factor users should remember is to back up their messaging history before uninstalling the application and starting over with GBWhatsApp. To know the entire process, here’s how you successfully restore WhatsApp chats to GBWhatsApp:
Back up your WhatsApp Chats
- Open WhatsApp
- Proceed to settings
- Select “Chats”
- Tap the Back up Chats option
- After that, allow time to let WhatsApp backup all your messages.
Download and install the latest GBWhatsApp
- Download GBWhatsApp APK
- Uninstall WhatsApp
- Install GBWhatsApp
As you uninstall your original WhatsApp, remember to not clear data from the app or else the whole process will be useless.
In order to successfully restore WhatsApp chats to GBWhatsApp, rename important folders needed. Here’s how:
- Open storage on your File Manager
- Look for WhatsApp folder then rename it to “GBWhatsApp”
- Open the renamed folder then tap “Media”
- Look for every subfolder that has WhatsApp and then rename and add “GB” to its beginning
Open and set up your account
After successfully renaming WhatsApp folders, you can now open your GBWhatsApp. The process is just similar to the original WhatsApp so it’s going to be pretty.
What would really matter is that once your account is set, the app reads those folders you renamed so always make sure that you have renamed them properly.
