After six months of WhatsApp video calling feature rolled out, the messaging giant said that India is the top country in the world to use the video calling features. In India, a total of over 50 million video calling minutes per day are executed, which the highest among all the other countries, said WhatsApp.
There are 1.2 billion monthly active users who make video calls across Android, iPhone, and Windows devices, globally. Out of those 200 million monthly active users as of Feb 2017 are from India.
WhatsApp video calling feature attracts over 340 million video calling minutes per day. WhatsApp also claims that users make over 55 million video calls per day through WhatsApp.
Out of the 340 million video calling minutes per day, 50 million video calling minutes are from India alone.
Altought WhatsApp was really late in introducing its video calling feature compared to its competitors, but its large subscriber base helped gaining huge traction in such a short time.
WhatsApp had earlier said that its video calling service are optimised to work in India, due to poor Internet connectivity.
WhatsApp recently introduced a separate video calling button for Android users, making it more accessible on the chat screen. Recently, WhatsApp also revamped its Status feature to bring a Snapchat-like disappearing video and photo format to the platform.
