The famous instant messaging app, WhatsApp has announced that more than 100 million voice calls are made every day on WhatsApp, which is over 1,100 calls a second.
WhatsApp introduced the voice calling feature in March last year on Android, followed by iOS and Windows. The voice calling uses a data connection to place a call, whether over Wi-Fi or mobile data. A single WhatsApp call consumes around 1.3MB of data per minute. Earlier this year, the company also announced that it has over 1 billion monthly active users.
“Since the early days of WhatsApp, we’ve worked to tear down the boundaries that stand between people staying. In touch with their friends and family. A little over a year ago, we made it possible to make calls using WhatsApp – for those times when it’s important to hear a voice on the other end of your phone. Today, we’re proud that people are making 100 million calls a day on WhatsApp!” – Jan Koum, Co-Founder and CEO, WhatsApp.
