Switch from WhatsApp to GB WhatsApp without losing chats!

Using WhatsApp with the same old limited features can be boring at some times, and it can limit your control over things as well. Considering these factors, one can only think of switching from WhatsApp to GB WhatsApp for more features and total control over things.

GB WhatsApp is your go-to option in this case, and you must be aware of its unique features and how popular it is among users. But wait for a second. The only thing preventing users from shifting to this app is the fear of losing their precious data, but don’t worry! I’ve got your back.

Let’s discuss some easy ways to transfer your data to this app from simple WhatsApp without hassle.

  • After you finish backing up your data, go to your file manager and find the WhatsApp folder. Inside that, you will find the “Database” folder. Copy that folder and paste it to a safe place.
