Along with many fellow communication apps, WhatsApp has also seen a significant surge in usage, through texts, audio and video calling alike. The app, which comes with end to end encryption, offers a safe suite of services. With Zoom being singled out for its privacy issues, the aspect of user safety and privacy is something that has helped WhatsApp to hold its ground. Going forward, it remains to be seen how WhatsApp expands its usage scope to include more users in its fold.
