WhatsApp PLUS 17.40.0, a MOD that adds options to WhatsApp

WhatsApp PLUS, also known as WhatsApp+ and WhatsApp Plus Holo, is a MOD based on the original application and adds several customization options to WhatsApp for Android, so we can get to change the visual look of the popular messaging application, with a multitude of themes and templates made by users, allowing us to put WhatsApp to our liking.

This WhatsApp PLUS is not the original one, nor the one from Abu Saddam Rifai, which was simply a copy of GBWhatsApp. This modification is original, it does not depend on others, like all the ones today that depend on Fouad WhatsApp or are simply copies that change the name and do not bring anything new, unlike this one.
