Interestingly, India had about 50 million internet users in 2010. But now it has more than 600 million active internet participants across the country. Therefore, tech giants like Google and Facebook are pushing their services in India, which still has so much potential.

You can also thank Reliance Jio for this since the telco introduces cheap internet services in India. In fact, Google and Facebook also investing in internet infrastructure across India, a country of nearly 1.4 billion people.

You may remember that Google started a project to bring Wi-Fi to 400 railway stations in the country. Meanwhile, Facebook launched Free Basics in India. But as the program was banned in the country — it launched Express Wi-Fi.

As per reports, more than 95% of WhatsApp’s monthly active users in India use the app each day. While its entire user base checks the app at least once a week. In comparison, three-fourths of YouTube’s monthly active users in India are also its daily active users.
