In this case of GBWhatsApp, we can’t update the app through Google Play Services, as we can do with other apps downloaded from the official store. That’s why the only way to update the app is downloading the APK file of the most recent version manually and then installing it. If you don’t know how to check whether there are new versions, you only have compare the data displayed in the app’s help section with the version offered on our website. We’ve always got the latest version ready to be downloaded, therefore, if your version number is lower than ours, that means that you need to update.
