WhatsApp has another reason to celebrate. Facebook owned cross-platform messenger has reached psychological mark of 1 billion users, with 42 million messages being exchanged per day. Facebook’s CEO mark Zuckerberg announced the news on Tuesday.
Mark posted on Facebook:
“One billion people now use WhatsApp. There are only a few services that connect more than a billion people. This milestone is an important step towards connecting the entire world.
Zuckerberg said that at WhatsApp, users share 1.6 billion photos and 250 million videos per day. In his post, mark added that the number of users on WhatsApp doubled since Facebook acquired the messenger app. Since then, the company made several improvements to make the app even more worthwhile, which includes addition of voice calling and dropping the subscription fee charges.
Mark further hinted that their next move will be to make WhatsApp platform a better place for businesses to communicate. However, he still denied any plan to let third party ads occupy the space.
