WhatsApp has 1bn daily active users globally

27 July 2017

Best iPhone, iPad, & Apple TV game controllersJust past year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month. The apps sees over 55 billion messages being shared every day, of which over 1 billion are video messages alone, and over 4.5 billion messages are just photos.

The numbers have increased since past year, where the company had reported that the service has about 1 billion active monthly users.

To recall, in 2014 the messaging platform had around 450 million monthly users when it was acquired by the social media giant Facebook.

WhatsApp has over 200 million users in India, and given the popularity of the app, it will likely continue to grow in the market.

We checked with them, and Whatsapp has declined to disclose its monthly and daily active users for India.

Usually it's the reality TV villain who "didn't come here to make friends", but sometimes that's even true of superheroes. There are six more episodes in this season of Game of Thrones , which airs Sundays at 9 p.m.

Facebook is apparently winning the race in the instant messaging platform, even though it's lifting the features from its counterpart Snapchat. The Facebook owned company has announced that it now has 1 billion daily active users on its service.

Most of us locally probably use WhatsApp as our main chat application since most of our friends and family are using it and the bundles that the mobile operators provide. Nevertheless, it won't be a disappointment for WhatsApp users, though. In contrast, Snapchat only has 166 million users, which doesn't come anywhere close to either Facebook or WhatsApp or Instagram's numbers.

WhatsApp for iOS will soon allow users to watch YouTube videos directly within the app.

Other than that, rumors have it, the Android version of WhatsApp is likely to introduce yet another interesting feature.
