As usual for a few months now, the version of WhatsApp Plus 2021 provided by Malavida is the development made by HeyMods, who are now updating one of the most popular MODs of this messaging app. Keep in mind that this is not an official development and multiple developers are working in parallel on different versions of WhatsApp Plus.
WhatsApp Plus developers are regularly adding new features and fixing bugs. These are the most recent additions, but there is already talk of more to come. Be patient and wait to see what new things are coming to the app.
