75 Billion WhatsApp messages were sent on New Year’s Eve. WhatsApp told Venturebeat.

WhatsApp is in line with our forecast of more than 70 billion sent messages.

According to WhatsApp, 13 billion images and 5 billion videos were sent on New Year’s Eve.


Every year WhatsApp is taking more measures to deal with the high volumes. However, this year the service went down when India, WhatsApp’s biggest market, was celebrating the new year.

Last year, New Year’s Eve went smooth for WhatsApp and people sent 63 billion messages.
