WhatsApp Breaks Records, Processing 64 Billion Messages in 24 Hours


WhatsApp announced yesterday that it processed 64 billion messages in just 24 hours, an all time record for the company.

Over 20 billion messages were sent and and about 44 billion messages were received including group messages, proving that the 456 million active user base is remaining strong even after the Facebook acquisition.

After Facebook acquired WhatsApp for a record $16 billion back in February, many were concerned that user data would not be safe and that the social media giant would use customer info for advertising purposes.

Facebook assured WhatsApp users that there would be no changes to the privacy policy and that WhatsApp would run as it’s own independent company for now.

WhatsApp has become one of the most successful texting apps available, offering users the opportunity to text messages and photos to friends and family all over the world for free. The app costs just .99 cents and is available for Android and iOS.

Recently, Whatsapp announced that it will also be introducing voice calls, helping to expand their customer database and compete with other calling service apps such as Viber.
