WhatsApp has a record of sending 100 billion messages a day

Can you guess how many messages people should have sent on the worldwide messaging app WhatsApp on New Year's Eve?

In fact, most of the messages in this app's 10-year history were sent in one day, and it's not easy for anyone to answer the statistics.

Because who would have thought that over 100 billion messages would be sent to WhatsApp on New Year's Eve?

The largest number of messages were sent to India at 20 billion, while 12 billion out of 100 billion messages were exchanged.

For the first time in the history of the app, so many messages were sent by users, according to the WhatsApp release.

"End-to-end encryption in the WhatsApp ensures that only you and the person in contact can read the message and no one is there, not even the WhatsApp. But it seems reasonable to assume that such a large number of messages sent on December 31 will be in reference to the New Year's greetings. '

The company also reported that the most popular features of WhatsApp in 2019 included text messages, status updates, photos messages, calling and voice notes.

It is estimated that the number of WhatsApp users worldwide is more than one and a half billion, and in 2018, Facebook Developer Conference reported that daily users send 65 billion messages and 2 billion minutes of voice and video calls to this application.

WhatsApp was purchased by Facebook in 2014 and it is likely that this app will start showing ads to users by 2020.
