WhatsApp users are making 100 million voice calls per day

Facebook owned WhatsApp said it is working to make the feature even better in the months to come.

WhatsApp has announced over 100 million voice calls are made everyday using the app. It said, the numbers translate to over 1,100 calls a second. WhatsApp calling was introduced in April last year.

“For more than a year, people have used WhatsApp Calling to talk with friends and family around the world. It’s a great way to stay in touch, especially when connecting with people in other countries, or when messages alone won’t do,” WhatsApp said in a blogpost.

“Today, more than 100 million voice calls are made every day on WhatsApp – that’s over 1,100 calls a second,” it added. Facebook owned WhatsApp said it is working to make the feature even better in the months to come.

The announcement comes at a time when the messaging platform is rumoured to be working on video-calling feature. The feature was earlier spotted in an Android beta build, but later taken off. We’ll have to wait and see when WhatsApp finally launches the video-calling feature.

WhatsApp recently added a host of new features to make its platform both convenient and fun. It rolled out a new feature for its Android beta testers that lets users quote a specific message and reply to it.

It is reportedly looking to add GIF support to its iOS app. The company added support to share documents, like PDFs, Doc files, etc even from third-party apps likeGoogle Drive, OneDrive.

WhatsApp is also now fully encrypted end-to-end by default, which means that man-in-the-middle attacks are no longer possible on WhatsApp chats, and no third-party can read or listen in to the conversations.
