Signal could not replace WhatsApp, now people are less likely to download the Signal app

There is a lot of controversy in India over WhatsApp privacy policy. Meanwhile, the instant messaging app signal came out. This was announced by big entrepreneur Tesla CEO Elon Musk in a tweet. People were asked to use the signal. Dissatisfied with WhatsApp, people started downloading the Signal app. Due to this the signal app download in India has increased a lot. But now the signal download is decreasing. At the same time, WhatsApp’s download ratio has remained stable since the privacy policy was postponed.

The love on WhatsApp users has started again

Signal app downloads reached 9 million in the first two weeks of January following a Elon Musk tweet. Signal downloads have dropped to 2.5 million a week, according to the Censor Tower report. At the same time, WhatsApp downloads, which had declined due to signal growth, have now returned to 2.8 million a week in India. WhatsApp has over 400 million users in the country and since January 1, 2014, WhatsApp has been downloaded 1.4 billion times in India.

June Harada, head of growth and communications at Signal App, told the Economic Times that the company did not disclose the number of users publicly and therefore did not want to share any specific data. However, he said that generally third party app data companies keep the number of downloads low.

Signal copied these features of WhatsApp

Recently, let us know that the Signal app has also copied many features of WhatsApp. Let us know what similar features have been added to the signal app that appears on WhatsApp:

>> WhatsApp introduced a custom wallpaper feature last year. This allows users to select different wallpapers for different chats. At the same time, this feature is also coming on the signal for Android and iOS users.

WhatsApp gives its users 11 options in the section about it. These include ‘Available’, ‘Busy’, ‘School’, ‘Movies’,’ At work ‘,’ Battery dead time ‘,’ Can’t talk ‘,’ WhatsApp only ‘,’ In a meeting ‘,’ In the gym ‘,’ Sleeping ‘and’ Urgent calls only ‘. Similarly, the Signal app also offers seven options for its bio, including ‘Speak free’, ‘Encrypted’, ‘Free to chat’, ‘Coffee lover’, ‘Take a break’, ‘Be kind’ and ‘Anything new’.

WhatsApp has a special low-data mode for calls that appear under the ‘Storage and Data’ section in the Settings tab. By enabling this, WhatsApp users can use less data for calls. At the same time, even on the signal, it may soon allow users to use less data in the data section for calls.
