If you think that you are addicted to WhatsApp, then before we move ahead I would like to say you are not the exception. As per the report in Forbes, US-based app analytics company, Apptopia showed that in the past three months, WhatsApp users spent 85 billion hours on the app. This translates to “11.425 hours for every human being on the planet”.
On the other hand, people spent only 30 billion hours on its parent company, Facebook. As reported by Forbes.
Four of the top 10 apps by time spent are Facebook’s Messenger, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Google is a leader as well, with YouTube and Google Maps in the top 10 apps by time spent overall.
Among the games, Clash of Clans topped the list with 3.83 billion hours spent followed by My Talking Tom, Candy Crush Saga, Fortnite, Lords Mobile, Subway Surfers, Helix Jump, Slither.io, PUBG Mobile and Fishdom.
With all these figures we can easily say that WhatsApp is the most loved messaging app globally. With billions of active users, but the platform has come under scathing attack due to the spread of fake news on it. Incidents of lynching and communal attacks have been triggered due to messages spread on the app in India.
The company has taken certain action to avoid spreading the fake news and making people aware of the message by giving tag of forwarded.
Among the games, Clash of Clans topped the list with 3.83 billion hours spent on it in the last three months, followed by My Talking Tom, Candy Crush Saga, Fortnite, Lords Mobile, Subway Surfers, Helix Jump, Slither.io, PUBG Mobile and Fishdom.
According to Apptopia, it gets its numbers by being integrated into hundreds of thousands of apps, which allows it to see performance data globally.
