WhatsApp processes record 27 billion messages in one day

WhatsApp says that there were 10 billion incoming messages and 17 billion outgoing messages processed in one 24 hour period. That makes for 27 billion total messages, which beats the old record of 18 billion, which was set on New Years Eve 2012. The incoming and outgoing message totals are not even, according to WhatsApp, because the outgoing message total gets inflated by group message.
It's hard to say how the number stacks up to other messaging platforms, because few others really give out those numbers. We had heard recently that BBM is processing about 10 billion messages a day by its 60 million users. WhatsApp recently said that it has 200 million active monthly users, but has not said how many total registered users are on the platform.

I've used what's app since day 1 and started using Google hangouts as well. The last update really fixed a lot of bugs and has two great features what's app doesn't share which is the ability to use in multiple devices and the video calling. It all comes down to preferences and I would like Google to stick to their own app and leave me with more options.

BBM would be going Cross platform later this summer to iOS & Andriod and is the best ever messaging platform. So would be seeing less and less of whatsapp and the others.

whatsapp rules! its by far the main IM app in India. Although wechat is rising strongly, it still lacks some features of whatsapp..
