‘WhatsApp Extensions’ is an Xposed module which lets you tweak WhatsApp to a whole new level by adding outstanding features. Xposed modules have always been a boon for android users to get additional benefits which the users miss from the official apps. XDA senior developer Surajkumar has introduced the brilliant WhatsApp addon; WhatsApp Extensions, through which you can add lots of option to the popular WhatsApp messenger.
It’s almost similar to the WhatsAppX module, but with few more additional benefits for the root users. You can install WhatsApp Extensions Xposed module over Xposed framework easily to avail the extended WhatsApp features. As I said above, these perks are limited to root users only.
