GBWhatsApp 6.55 APK Update
The latest update for GBWhatsApp sports the 6.55 version number and its available in the form of APK. For those who are unfamiliar with APK updates, this is a format that stands for Android Package Kit and as you can probably tell, this type of updates are compatible only with Android-powered smartphones.
We should also mention that APK GBWhatsApp users are required to enable the “Unknown Sources” feature and to manually download and install the APK update because this type of update is not rolled out OTA (over the air). Nonetheless, let’s check out everything there is to know about the new 6.55 APK update.
Size and Requirements
The first thing that GBWhatsApp users need to know about the latest APK update is that it weighs in at 34.46MB. The update is fairly big in size and therefore we advise all GBWhatsApp users to make sure to download it over a safe Wi-Fi network instead of mobile data and to make sure that they can have enough free internal storage space for it. Furthermore, the update also requires a smartphone that runs on a minimum of Android 4.0 or higher operating system in order to function.
The APK update introduces lots of new features and software tweaks that all GBWhatsApp users should make sure to get. With that said, we are going to list every new feature that the update brings so that GBWhatsApp users can get an idea of what to expect from this latest update.
