India's obsession with cheery Good Morning messages is filling up the internet
Did you know that one in three smartphone users in India runs out of phone memory on a daily basis?
Google researchers in Silicon Valley were trying to figure out why so many smartphones were freezing up half a world away and the answer to that is "Good Morning." Google has discovered an overabundance of pictures of flowers, adorable babies, birds and sunsets sent along with cheery Good Morning messages in India.
Apparently, millions of Indians who are new to the virtual world are the main reason behind this glitch. According to reports, the Good Morning image messages start getting shared even before sunrise and reaches a crescendo before 8 am. Affordable smartphones and wireless broadband seem to have fuelled the common Indian tendency to bond with large groups.
While the morning greetings and chirpy messages are abundant, it is not really right to think that all Indians fall into the same category. While most of them seem to enjoy it, the ones who complain about it, mostly youngsters, who receive the early morning messages are also on the rise.
People have admitted to muting and leaving groups when they find the messages too cheery, too annoying or when they come too early.
Google has even come up with a new app as a solution to the annoyance. The app called Files Go has a special feature to search out and delete all the good-morning messages at once. The app, revealed last December, already has more than 10 million downloads so far, with obviously, more users in India than any other country.
