27 billion WhatsApp messages sent in a single day

WhatsApp, the cross-platform mobile messaging app that allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS, has hit a new record after announcing it has processed 27 billion messages: 10 billion inbound messages and 17 billion received messages over a 24 hour period.

The total number of messages exchanged has significantly increased since 2012 when it had reached a maximum of 18 billion, however it isn’t surprising after WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum recently revealed that the company has more than 200 million active monthly users.
