Wednesday, 7 January 2015

WhatsApp messaging application enormous owned by Facebook, announced Tuesday that it now has 700 million monthly active users, making it one of the most popular networks from around the web. The application, which allows users to send text messages without having to pay for messaging plans through carriers, has reached its milestone of 700 million active people by adding 100 million users since August.

Jan Koum, CEO of WhatsApp, announced the growth of a Facebook message Tuesday, also revealing users sent 30 billion messages per day. 700 million active users, WhatsApp is more popular than Twitter and Facebook, owned by Instagram.

"We are grateful that many of you are using WhatsApp to keep in touch with friends and family, colleagues and classmates business" Koum wrote.

Facebook acquired WhatsApp for a massive $ 19 billion in early 2014 and was seen as a form of the largest social network to gain an understanding into new regions. WhatsApp is very popular in Asia, with India alone has a user base of over 70 million. It is available platform, and allows users to seamlessly send images, video messages and audio media. Locations can also be shared through the use of integrated mapping functions.

WhatsApp did not specify how many of the 700 million active users are paying. For all types of phones, WhatsApp is free to download and try for the first year. Then you have the option to extend your subscription for $ 0.99 USD per year. In many markets outside the United States, WhatsApp is much more viable due to the existence of fees or charges for daily SMS SMS, which make much more costly text messages.

"As a humble and excited as we are about these numbers and our continued growth, we are even more excited to continue building a great product in 2015 ... We pledge to continue working hard to make WhatsApp even better," Koum wrote.
