WhatsApp: Now one billion people send 55 billion messages per day

WhatsApp-Facebook

Compared to last year's numbers where WhatsApp raked in 1 billion active users every month, this is an incredible growth. A whopping 1 billion videos are shared on a daily basis while the number of photos stands at 4.5 billion.

Interestingly WhatsApp has grown more than two folds after it was acquired by Facebook in 2014.

If you use a smartphone, then WhatsApp is one of the important apps in your app drawer. The company further revealed that it in an average 55 billion messages are sent per day. That figure has since grown to 1.3 billion. I think it'll be hard to do that without getting major backlash from the users as WhatsApp has built a brand around not putting ads in the app. WhatsApp says that they will be adding additional features to the platform for the users' convenience. Today, we are excited and proud to share that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every day to stay in touch with their family and friends.

Also, the feature may only come to the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

The upcoming PiP video calling feature will let you minimize the video call window into a small one in order to let you chat with other WhatsApp users without disconnecting the video call.

Status is WhatsApp's version of Instagram Stories - which is coincidentally a copy of Snapchat's Stories feature - allowing users to post pictures and video for their contacts to see.
