Signal app experiencing massive sign ups after Elon Musk told everyone to switch from WhatsApp
For those who don't know, Signal is another messaging app which Elon Musk tweeted last week. In just two words ("Use Signal"), it seems that the company's server is experiencing verification codes delay with a sudden spike of new users. They are currently working with several carriers to solve this issue as soon as possible.
Use Signal— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 7, 2021
Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there.— Signal (@signalapp) January 7, 2021
With that said, Signal has indirectly become a new competitor for WhatsApp. However, it won't be easy for current WhatsApp users to transition to Signal or other apps especially in Malaysia. Many friends and family chat groups, as well as for work and small businesses are already there for a long time.
