If we take a look at past few months, WhatsApp got some amazing features which are loved by many. As we all know, WhatsApp suffered an outage lasting more than an hour late on December 31, 2017.
WhatsApp recently revealed that more than 75 billion messages were shared on New Year’s Evening. And out of those 75 billion, more than 20 billion messages were sent just from India. Well, the 75 billion figure is also the highest-ever number of message shared on the platform.
Right now WhatsApp has over 1 billion active users worldwide and out of those India is its biggest market with over 200 million users. According to WhatsApp, out of 75 billion messages, 13 billion were images and 5 billion were videos.
The company also claimed that they have recorded that much data only for 11:59 pm to 12 am on December 31st.
