    The messages might get replaced, they are in kb's. I am talking about videos and audio files. Like I mentioned above, 15mb file was uploaded and then we sent a video of 10mb but the second time we took the backup whole 25mb was uploaded and not just 10mb. In my case the backup size is like 500mb+
    Are you concerned with the bandwidth it uses or the storage it takes ?? Because from your query, 15MB video and then 10MB videos means totally 25 MB. That's how it should be.

    Also, whatsapp can't upload individual files. It takes too much processing and unnecessary overhead. They simply bundle it up and then upload at the periodic interval set by you!!

    I am concerned about the size and bandwidth both. That 25 mb was uploaded from a new phone with WA installed for the first time. In my phone say I take the backup today, the size will be around 500mb and say I take the backup again after 2 days the size would increase to 600-700mb and the whole 600-700mb's of data is reuploaded and not just the 100-200mb additional or new files.

    Yes.. Like i said earlier, it doesn't upload individual media files but a bundle of them !! Also, there's a reason whatsapp warns you to use wifi to sync!!

    Thanks. To conclude it deletes/overwrites the older bundle and replaces it with a new one. What a waste of bandwidth.

    Sir an out of context question, We tried to install WA+ in a S7(non-edge) phone but we are getting an error, The package conflicts with an existing package by the same name. Since there is no way to uninstall the preinstalled WA, we disabled it but still the same error is there. There are people who have WA+ in their phones without rooting or deleting the preinstalled version. How to bypass this error?

    There are many versions of WA+ out there. One of them is GB Whatsapp. It is that one, which allows you two have two whatsapp at the same time. Other's don't allow it.

    You tried normal GB Whatsapp, there's another one called, Dual GB Whatsapp. You can identify them by their package name. If they have the package name, "com.whatsapp" then you will get conflict. Dual GB Whatsapp have the name "com.gbwhatsapp"

    Actually I don't want the dual thing. I just want some modded stuff the requirement of which is fulfilled by WA+ or GBWA. Anyway to bypass this error? How to change the name of the package?

    Okay, in that case, you HAVE TO un-install original whatsapp app to install the modded one. If you are afraid of losing your messages, you can take a backup of them which will be restored in modded ones.

    My dear in the new phones specially Samsung's you cannot uninstall the preinstalled softwares without root. I don't want to root yet as it will ruin the warranty. I installed WA+ in one of the phones without any issues and then the owner told me remove it. Now I am getting the same error if I try to install WA+ or GBWA in that phone too.
