It is already a classic: at 11:59 p.m. on December 31/0 hours on January 1, WhatsApp gives the hiccups and I go on pedals, or it definitely falls. It does not always happen, but it does happen that, as with phone calls, the enormous volume of traffic that the application must support on its servers causes your service to falter.
If for whatever reason you cannot send that New Year’s greeting 2021 by WhatsApp, here are other alternatives:
It is safer, more reliable, with a more efficient service and the fastest on the market. Clearly Telegram is better than WhatsApp as a messaging app, and in fact it is the only rivals that has remained and continues to stand prominently in second position. So why is WhatsApp still the most used app?
Simply because users have gotten used to it, but when something like today happens and WhatsApp crashes, then everyone goes raudo a Google Play y la App Store to get off Telegram to continue talking to your contacts. And if you don’t believe us and you already have Telegram installed, try to see in the main interface how many new contacts from your mobile phone book have just made a Telegram account.
One of those that benefited at the beginning of this year from the massive exodus of WhatsApp users, Signal was founded in 2013 and has about 10 million users per month, an amount that may seem pyrrhic next to the 2,500 million of WhatsApp, but that it is an instant messaging application supported by Brian Acton -co-founder of WhatsApp-, and that it is broasted in an open source, So anyone can see how it works, unlike WhatsApp, which although it is based on the same protocol -Open Whisper Systems-, is not open source.
The use of Signal is being recommended for communication between EU staff and people who do not work within the European Commission, so the EU makes it clear that it does not support other messaging applications such as Telegram or the iMessage of iOS and Apple
Another alternative to when WhatsApp goes down is LINE, a cross-platform messaging app that comes with functions similar to the messaging app such as an encryption system between users, support for voice and video calls, but also with its own functions such as the option to make international calls to users who do not have LINE, a sticker store, the ability to save your favorite photos and messages and even a timline where you can see which user has changed their status and photo and when they did.
Perhaps the messaging app that offers the most security, Threema encrypts all end-to-end communications, including the messages, group chats, multimedia files And till status messages. Threema uses the open source NaCl cryptography library for encryption.
To prevent backdoor access or copying, encryption keys are generated and stored securely on user devices. keeps your data out of the reach of hackers, businesses, and the government, and can be used completely anonymously. In addition, it offers a wide range of functionalities such as Threema Web, that allows us to use Threema also from the computer.
Ideal for those who hate having to give their phone number as WhatsApp requires, with Wire no need to share your phone number with other people. Just give them your Username to connect.
Register with a phone number on your mobile or with your email on your desktop PC, then log in with the same account on your mobile, and that’s it. You can also share links from YouTube, Spotify, Vimeo o SoundCloud in chat and others can play them without leaving Wire. And if you posted something in the wrong chat by accident, no problem, as you can remove it from all the devices that received it.
