About 100 billion messages are transmitted by the Whatsapp every day. Who gives the figure on the use of the messenger purchased by Facebook in 2014 is Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the company, during the announcement of the company’s financial results in the third quarter of 2020, this Thursday (29).
The number reflects the greatness of the messenger around the world. For comparison, this is the amount of messages exchanged during the last New Year’s Eve, as noted by TechCrunch. The figure also exceeds the results of 2016, when 42 billion messages were shared every day.
“This year, we all rely on messages more than ever to keep in touch with our loved ones and do business,” said Will Cathcart, head of WhatsApp, on Twitter. “We are proud that WhatsApp is capable of delivering around 100 billion messages every day and we are excited about the future.”
In February 2020, WhatsApp surpassed the mark of 2 billion users worldwide, above the figure of 1.5 billion registered in February 2018. Also in the same month of this year, WhatsApp was present in 99% of cell phones in Brazil.
WhatsApp Payments should return in November
WhatsApp Payment was suspended by the Central Bank shortly after the announcement of its debut to assess the possible risks of the platform. But the service may be about to return: according to Cielo, the partner responsible for processing the transactions of the messaging application, the payments service should return in November.
“The expectation that we have heard from parties involved in the matter is that the regulator’s authorization will come out in November,” said Cielo’s president, Paulo Caffarelli, during the presentation of the company’s results for the third quarter of 2020, this Wednesday- fair (28).
