WhatsApp Beats iMessage With 10 Billion Messages a Day

The popular app sends 300 billion messages per month; the same amount iMessage has generated in its lifetime.
WhatsApp popularity is so vast that it exceeds the amount of iMessages has send in its lifetime in just a single month.

Apple had announced during its iPad event that over 300 billion iMessages have been sent between iOS users since the system released during the autumn of 2011. While the aforementioned figure is certainly impressive, WhatsApp experiences 10 billion monthly messages sent per day, which is around 300 billion messages sent per month.

WhatsApp has boasted the 10 billion-a-day-messages-sent figure since August, 2012. In comparison, one billion messages were sent via the app per day during October, 2011.

A year ago, WhatsApp ranked in the top five apps category in more than 50 countries. By the summer of 2012, however, it became the number one app in more than a hundred countries.
