Messaging app company, WhatsApp Inc, announced yesterday that its globally popular app now processes an impressive 27 billion messages a day! The announcement was made on twitter by the company’s official account:
new daily record: 10B+ msgs sent (inbound) and 17B+ msgs received (outbound) by our users = 27 Billion msgs handled in just 24 hours!

The app has grown phenomenally since launch just a few years ago becoming the dominant messaging. Just two months ago, WhatsApp announced that the platform was processing a total 20 billion messages a day. The growth therefore appears not to be slowing down despite emerging competition mainly from Asian messaging startups.
WhatsApp describes itself as “an amazing SMS replacement app” allowing smartphone users to cheaply send text and multimedia files to each other using the internet for a fraction of the SMS cost. The app is available for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Nokia Symbian and Nokia S40 mobile phone platforms.
