WhatsApp continues to grow like no other messenger. In addition to classic text messages, the status function is particularly popular.
WhatsApp appears to be unbeatable as a messaging service in Germany and in many other parts of the world. Virtually no replacement, no serious competition. You can underline the current figures. On the last day of New Year’s Eve, everyone in the world sent an average of 13 WhatsApp messages. Why this number? As of December 31, 2019, WhatsApp had to forward around 100 billion messages to users’ end devices around the world. According to the Facebook company, a new all-time high. However, we would not be surprised if the next New Year’s Eve offers a new record.
WhatsApp is booming with German users
Only in Germany, the reported figures are not much less impressive. In this country, more than 2 billion messages were executed on WhatsApp servers on the last day of last year. Makes the average number of 24 messages per German resident. No other courier should be able to provide comparable figures.
The status function is extremely popular
One of the most popular functions of WhatsApp is, of course, mainly sending text messages. But behind it is the status function, which was taken from Instagram in a stripped down version a long time ago. This clarifies for us why there are announcements that will be seen there starting this year. There is no start date for the latter yet.
