WhatsApp popular during New Year’s Eve
During the turn of the year, wish your friends a happy ending and a healthy start to the new year. WhatsApp can no longer be ignored in our daily life, and also during the New Year. During the turn of the year from 2020 to 2021, the famous messaging service also set a new record when it comes to video and call conversations via the service.
New Year’s Eve was celebrated with 1.4 billion call and video calls via WhatsApp. Never before have so many telephone calls been made via WhatsApp. The use of the calling function in WhatsApp has increased by 50 percent this year, compared to the previous turn of the year. 55 million live streams were shared on Instagram Live and Facebook Live on New Year’s Eve.
Nothing has been announced about the number of messages sent via WhatsApp during the turn of the year. In the turn of the year 2017-2018, the number of messages exchanged was 75 billion. The year before that was 63 billion. We dare to say that that number is now certainly over 100 billion messages worldwide.
