Over 100 Billion Messages Exchanged through WhatsApp on New Year’s Eve

WhatsApp is one of the best communication apps throughout the world that is used for messages and media exchanges regularly. With the inception of WhatsApp, iMessage and other text message services have lost their mojo among users. Even though WhatsApp require internet service, most people around the world use it for text messaging.

On new year’s eve, WhatsApp broke all records by recording over 100 billion messages sent through the app. The new revelation by WhatsApp has taken everyone by shock. The data further shows that only 20 Billion of these messages are from Indian users. Apart from it, about 12 billion messages sent through the app were in the form of images.

In a tweet, WhatsApp mentioned that these record-breaking messages were sent only during the 24-hour duration of the New Year’s eve. Imagine, 100 billion messages in just 24 hours? Astonishing!

The UK and other countries were not behind, as the data suggests over 900 million messages were sent within the UK during the New Year’s eve on WhatsApp.

The data shows how rapidly WhatsApp is moving ahead and still remains the number one choice of people all over the world. Not only just you can send messages, but you can also send media messages, put stories, send location, etc. in encryption.

WhatsApp was bought by Facebook in 2014 in only 19 billion dollars and today the app is much more worth it than it was before. It is one of the most favorite apps of people throughout the world.

With over 1.5 billion active users, the number of messages still remains an intriguing question. This shows how rapidly WhatsApp is increasing in its worth and replacing other traditional forms of messaging. Let’s see where the number will skyrocket in the next year!
