WhatsApp Gets A Billion Users Every Day


WhatsApp, undoubtedly the largest messaging app, has claimed that it gets one billion users everyday who actively interact on the messaging platform on a daily basis. The company said this in a company blog.

The company said a year back there were one billion active users on its platform for every month but now it got the same number of users every day.

“Just last year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month. Today, we are excited and proud to share that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every day to stay in touch with their family and friends,” the blog writes.

As per the data shared by the company, WhatsApp gets 1 billion active users per day, 1.3 billion active users per month and a total of 55 billion messages are sent per day.

Besides, the company said, there are 1 billion videos and 4.5 billion photos shared through its platform on a daily basis.

“As we celebrate this milestone, we’re committed more than ever to bringing you more useful features to enjoy, while delivering the reliability, simplicity, and security you expect with WhatsApp. Thank you for your continued support,” wrote the blog.

The messaging app firm had only 320 million daily active users and 450 million monthly active users when Facebook acquired it for $19 billion 4 years back.

WhatsApp, in just four years, has grown four times to reach 1 billion active users a day and at present supports 60 international languages.
