WhatsApp has reached another milestone this year – one billion people are using WhatsApp everyday.
The latest milestone comes more than a year after WhatsApp shared that one billion people used its instant messaging app every month, which has now grown to 1.3 billion monthly active users. It also revealed other interesting figures such as:
- 55 billion messages sent per day
- 4.5 billion photos shared per day
- 1 billion videos shared per day
WhatsApp has seen its usage statistics increased over the past year. A recent study conducted by the Reuters Institute revealed that people in some countries (Malaysians included) use WhatsApp to get their news. Earlier in January this year, a WhatsApp spokesperson informed VentureBeat that 63 billion messages were sent on New Year’s Eve, which included 7.9 billion images and 2.4 million videos! In June 2016, WhatsApp stated that there were more than 100 million voice calls made through its app everyday.
