Prime Minister announced the complete lock down in India for 21 days. No one is going anywhere, offices, colleges and schools are closed. Because everyone is at home, they are using a lot of internet and social media. That is why servers are facing a huge traffic on networks.

In this situation, Whatsapp decided to reduce the duration of status videos. In past we were allowed to upload a video of 30 sec but now it is only 15 sec. This will help networks to handle the huge traffic. With this users will be able to use internet smoothly. Net speed and Data connection related problems will decrease after this.

Whatsapp usage increased during Lock down: According to media reports, the usage of WhatsApp has increased by 40% due to the lock down. Also, this has put pressure on the data network. On the other hand, the use of video streaming apps has also increased rapidly these days. But video streaming companies have also reduced the quality of content, so that more data is not used.
