WhatsApp Messenger continues to grow by leaps and bounds to the point where one has to wonder just how high it can go before it starts to level off. So far, it shows no signs of doing so.
Back in October, WhatsApp’s CEO announced a milestone of 350 million total users, with an average of 250,000 users joining the messaging app every single day. Today, that milestone has leaped to 400 million total users spanning Android, Windows Phone, iOS devices, and most anything else with a screen.
50 million users in two months is definitely something to be proud of
50 million in two months is definitely something to be proud of, especially for a company that includes just 50 employees in its ranks. 100 million total users were added in the last four months alone. It’s worth noting that this is counting monthly active users only; downloads and low usage added to this would, of course, bring these numbers way up, but focusing exclusively on monthly active users makes the milestone that much more meaningful.
Needless to say, WhatsApp is currently the leader to beat in the messaging app market and continues to move full speed ahead. With heavy contenders like Viber and BBM in the market, WhatsApp holds its own with flying colors. The question is, how long will it last?
