In case you want to learn more about WhatsApp, here’s what a description via Google Play has to say:
“WhatsApp from Meta is a FREE messaging and video calling app. It’s used by over 2B people in more than 180 countries. It’s simple, reliable, and private, so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. WhatsApp works across mobile and desktop even on slow connections, with no subscription fees*.”
In March 2020, the usage of WhatsApp reached a 40% increase, and we can all guess what the reason might have been. That was the time when the COVID pandemic hit hardly plenty of places around the globe, and the authorities decided to impose lockdowns.
But WhatsApp can be used for purposes that are more ‘serious’ than entertainment. We can also keep in mind that there are more than 8 million business catalogs on Meta’s instant-messaging app.
Meta can boast about over 2 billion people across the world using WhatsApp, and the future of the instant-messaging software sure sounds good.
