How Good Morning Messages Are Choking Smartphones Across India
Are you tired of family members sending you Good Morning messages every morning? Does their forwarded messages and photos take up all the space in your mobile phone? Well, you are not alone.
In fact, now this popular trend has become a serious problem not just for us but for the world. With millions of ‘good morning’ texts, images and even videos sent and received every morning across the country, one in three smartphone users in India runs out of space daily. It’s a traffic jam on the Internet!
According to the report, a survey by data-storage firm Western Digital Corp found that one in three smartphone users in India run out of space daily compared with one in 10 in the US.
The problem, discovered by Google, is an overabundance of sun-dappled flowers, adorable toddlers, birds and sunsets sent along with a cheery message, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Millions of Indians, who are getting online for the first time like nothing better than to begin the day by sending ‘Good Morning’ greetings from their phones.
To tackle the problem, Whatsapp added a status message last year so users could say good morning to all of their contacts at once.
WhatsApp says more than 20 billion New Year’s messages were sent in India, a record, and more than any other country.
