Whatsapp is the most popular messaging service and has now reached another milestone: one billion active users per day.
Whatsapp was the most popular messenger some years ago because it was (and is) cheaper and easier for most smartphone users to send messages over the Internet rather than the old SMS system. Even the controversial takeover by Facebook in 2014 has not hurt the service, even if there are still concerns about privacy and data protection. A small obstacle to further growth was probably the fact that Whatsapp was initially free, but after a year but 0.99 US dollar / euro year fee were necessary.
2016 a billion users per month
In January 2016, Whatsapp also eliminated this hurdle and has been a free-to-use app ever since. Only two weeks after the announcement of the abolition of the fee, the service could then report more than a billion users per month. This figure has now risen to 1.3 billion active users, but it is much more interesting that the messaging service now has a billion users per day. This also equates to 55 billion daily news about Whatsapp sent news, 4.5 billion photos, and one billion videos shared per day.
Developers promise further features
Whatsapp now supports 60 languages and is expected to provide more useful features, but the focus on “reliability, simplicity and security” will not be lost. A year ago Whatsapp had also set itself the goal of winning the remaining six billion people as customers. Facebook is competing with Whatsapp in some way, there is also the Facebook Messenger, to which also last 1.3 billion active users per month were announced.
The fact that WhatsApp is becoming more successful and popular is not a new message. It is also no wonder, because the developers always ensure improvements as well as extensions through which the app gains content. This was also to be seen in the user numbers, which never accepted, but rather more. This is also reflected in the new milestone for app developers. One billion active users have recently been registered every day. This is an extremely high performance, because it is not quite so long ago, when the numbers were still somewhat smaller.
With this, further details regarding statistics were revealed. This also includes 1.3 billion users online each month. 55 billion messages are exchanged per day. Also sharing video and pictures is billions area. The use of this app never seems to decrease, but to continue to climb upwards.
WhatsApp as successful as never
In order to achieve such figures, many different languages should, of course, be offered. This is the case with WhatsApp, because 60 languages can be found in the program code. It is clear that the number of active users is increasing as more and more people are given the opportunity to use WhatsApp. Plus, it’s easy to use, because it’s more than simple to install and get started.
