WhatsApp: Facebook’s Instant Messenger Hits 1 Billion Active Monthly Users

WhatsApp now outperforms Facebook’s own Messenger mobile app, which only has 800 million monthly users by one billion WhatsApp active users. The Facebook-owned company said 42 billion messages and 250 million videos were sent out over WhatsApp daily. I bet it could reach the 2 billion active monthly users target within the next few years and anyhow now the company has its eye on Earth’s remaining six billion who aren’t been the part of using WhatsApp.

With 1 billion monthly users, WhatsApp crowed about its active user count and the outfit says that’s lamost one in seven people on living on Earth who use Facebook’s $19 billion messaging application. Makes sense, the primary point to note is that if the company hadn’t dropped its $1 annual subscription fee, just think would be a relatively easy billion dollars a year in income — and we all know just how cool that much money is.


Although we are aware of other dominent players in the market where WhatsApp didn’t reached yet. WeChat in China only has more than 500 million users, whereas Line is popular in Japan, and about Kakao Talk is a big firm in South Korea. But these are all on making its trend in their own regions and locations, where WhatsApp is certainly the best messaging app with the most international success.

One billion people now use WhatsApp. Congrats to Jan, Brian and everyone who helped reach this milestone! WhatsApp’s…

Since Facebook bought the mobile messaging WhatsApp in 2014, in a deal worth $19bn (£11.4bn). The usage data the platform generates for Facebook could help the company improve its targeted advertising, which is its core business model, said Mr Kent. Released WhatsApp Web Client for web browser and voice calls features and continues to add video calling as well, that can make this Facebook-owned messenger app more unique and more relevant in its nature.
