WhatsApp users are making 100 million calls daily

WhatsApp users are now making over 100 million calls every day, which translates to over 1,100 calls per second. The popular messaging service crossed 1 billion users earlier this year, with recent reports stating that the app is now used by 95% of all smartphone users in India and 94% of smartphone owners in Brazil, two of its largest markets.

The milestone highlights WhatsApp's importance in growth markets, where the service is becoming the go-to platform for communication. Making or receiving voice calls on WhatsApp is very straightforward, and the feature works over Wi-Fi, 4G, 3G, and even 2G data connections. There's even an option to reduce voice clarity to reduce bandwidth usage, which is an added bonus for those on metered connections.
