Leaving Snapchat Behind WhatsApp Users Cross the 1 Billion Mark

This is igniting progress, in the event that we take a look last year’s numbers where WhatsApp ranked up 1 billion active clients consistently. Likewise, the Snapchat Stories clone – WhatsApp Status – has figured out more than 250 million every day active clients as well, considerably more than what Snapchat itself appreciates at present.

In a blog entry, the Facebook-possessed organization reported this milestone, likewise expressing that the month to month active client base has expanded to 1.3 billion. Moreover, just about 55 billion messages are shared each day in 60 supported languages. Recordings shared every day is currently at 1 billion, and photographs shared every day are at 4.5 billion.

In only two years, the organization figured out how to build its aggregate month to month clients to 1 billion in February 2014. Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014.

WhatsApp Status released not long ago, has figured out how to expand its client base to 250 million consistently in only a span of a half year. In the examination, Snapchat appreciates 166 million day by day active clients on its entire application, including Stories, coordinate messages, and different features.

“As we commend this point of reference, we’re committed like never before to bringing you more helpful features to appreciate, while delivering the simplicity, reliability, and security you expect with WhatsApp,” said by the WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum in the blog.

While Facebook stats are commanding, what’s truly striking is the development of WhatsApp Status in such a brief timeframe. To defeat Snapchat in such a brief timeframe is no small achievement, and it shows a pause in judgment from the Snapchat group to underestimate the huge potential that was lying outside of the universe of US. Aside from WhatsApp Status, the chat service is currently seeking to bring business integration for monetization. The organization has been accounted to make a separate application for business clients also.
