The Indian market is so big that if you are creating something for India, you are creating it for the world, says Brian Acton, co-founder of Signal. He was speaking in an interview with NDTV.
“India is a multicultural country, so Signal is being made available in 12 languages, including Hindi. My Indian colleagues give me a lot of useful information about the market here. It helps to predict ideas. India is such a major country in the world that if you create something for India, you create it for the world. ”
Brian Acton said, “WhatsApp has 400 million users in India. So India is a huge market. We look forward to making more signal users in India. We are trying to give users an option so that they do not compromise with their digital privacy.”
Brian Acton further said, “We are expanding the capacity of our servers. Now the number of our users is growing exponentially and we have succeeded in managing it. And this is an opportunity for us. ”
