WhatsApp Goes Milestone By Surpassing 1 bBllion Monthly Active users


WhatsApp crossed the 900 monthly active users back in September, and less than five months later it has finally breached the billion mark.

WhatsApp’s founder and CEO Jan Koum announced this milestone via a Facebook post saying, “One billion users. Couldn’t be more proud of our small team doing so much in just seven years.” The company says now one in seven people on Earth use WhatsApp each month, and has also shared some interesting numbers to go with the announcement.

Koum has shared a chart which says that WhatsApp’s one billion users now send 42 billion messages per day. To put this into perspective, a recent report said that globally around 20 billion SMS are being sent globally. The report also says that SMS message traffic peaked in 2011, and has been declining ever since.

WhatsApp also says that users are sharing 1.6 billion photos every day, and also sharing around 250 million videos on a daily basis.

WhatsApp has taken seven years to reach the billion users mark. In comparison, its parent company Facebook took roughly eight years to touch billion users. The social giant recently announced that it has around 1.59 billion monthly active users and around 800 active users on Messenger. Of this, Facebook says that 1.04 billion users are active daily, and 934 million use Facebook daily on their mobiles
