WhatsApp now sends close to 100 billion messages every day, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg sharing the information himself. WhatsApp crossed the figure of sending 100 billion messages a day for the first time on New Year’s Eve last year.
Quarterly morning call During, Zuckerberg shared that 2.5 billion (250 million) people worldwide use one or more Facebook apps every day and more than 10 million (10 million) active on services offered by the company Are advertisers. New Year’s Eve is the day when WhatsApp usually sees a big jump in the exchange of messages and the same has been happening for the past several years. In 2017, WhatsApp sent 63 billion messages on New Year’s Eve, followed by 75 billion in 2018 and more than 100 billion last year. Now, around 100 billion (100 billion) messages are delivered every day.
With this number, no other messaging service is even around WhatsApp. The reason for this is the growing userbase of the app, which crossed the 2 billion (200 million) mark earlier this year. According to a Statista report, WhatsApp reached five billion downloads on Android in January this year, making it only the second non-Google app to reach this huge figure.
To make the app more user friendly, WhatsApp has been adding new features from time to time and many new features are still in the works. It recently gave users the “Always Mute” feature, which has given users the ability to mute chat alerts forever. This feature has brought a sigh of relief for many users.
