    In this paper we introduce approximate $\phi$-biprojective Banach algebras, where $\phi$ is a non-zero character. We show that for SIN group $G$, the group algebra $L^{1}(G)$ is approximately $\phi$-biprojective if and only if $G$ is amenable, where $\phi$ is the augmentation character. Also we show that the Fourier algebra $A(G)$ over a locally compact $G$ is always approximately $\phi$-biprojective.
