What is WhatsApp Plus?

WhatsApp Plus is a modified version of original WhatsApp app, but the original company (WhatsApp) has nothing to do with this application. This application does almost everything WhatsApp can do, and comes with the almost the same user interface. However, WhatsApp Plus provides much more options compared to original WhatsApp.

What WhatsApp Plus Offers that WhatsApp Doesn’t


WhatsApp Plus has 6 new features under Privacy option compared to real WhatsApp application. We have explained all these features in detail below, and in the end you will also find a demo video to show how to enable or disable these features.

1. Disable Second Tick (Delivery Report) for Contacts and Groups

When you send a Message to anyone, you see Double Tick with the sent message if the Message is delivered to the user, and when they read Double tick turns Blue. WhatsApp Plus allows to disable that second tick for Contacts as well as Groups. So no one will understand whether the message got delivered or not. WhatsApp lacks this feature.

Please note that the second click will only be seen by sender when you read the message. Once you read it, sender will see second click in blue color (as read receipt). This read receipt blue tick can also be disabled that we will learn next.

How to Disable/Enable Second Tick for Contacts or Groups on WhatsApp Plus

  1. Tap the option button on WhatsApp Plus (located on the top right corner), make sure you are in Chats tab when you tap menu
  2. Tap Privacy
  3. Tap Second Tick
  4. Select hide for Contacts/hide for groups
  5. When you want to enable second tick in future, follow the same procedure, and in the end you need to select Show for Contacts/Show for groups

2. Disable Blue Tick (Read Receipt) For Contacts and Groups

Read Receipt appears with two ticks marks in Blue Color on WhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus.

WhatsApp also allows to disable read receipt, but it’s not very useful. You can’t disable read receipt for groups, and when you disable for contacts, you won’t get read receipt as well. So when you disable this feature from your WhatsApp settings, it is disabled for both (sender and receiver).

Well, WhatsApp Plus Allows to disable Read Receipt for Contacts as well as Groups. When you disable read receipt from WhatsApp Plus, you will still get read receipt for the messages you send to other WhatsApp users, but the other WhatsApp users will not get read receipt (blue tick) even you have read their messages.

  1. Launch WhatsApp Plus Application on your Android Phone
  2. Select Chats tab, Tap on Menu/Option icon
