WhatsApp now has 1 billion daily users, over 250 million on Status

WhatsApp users share 55 billion texts, 4.5 billion photos, 1 billion videos daily

According to the company, WhatsApp now services over 1.3 billion active monthly users and its servers see 55 billion messages sent every day in 60 languages.

Earlier this month similar messages were also sent by text asking users to pay 99p for a lifetime subscription by following a link.

Despite WhatsApp's move to adopt end-to-end encryption by default for its billion users around the world, rights groups have termed the policies of the instant messaging app too weak to protect user privacy from governments. According to the WhatsApp, it has successfully acquired 1 billion daily active users on its service.

WhatsApp has announced that it has over 1 billion daily active users on the app, out of a total of 1.3 billion monthly active users. "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", WhatsApp said in a blogpost. That's despite it being relegated to a secondary dedicated tab in the app, opposed to being front and center on the home screen like Instagram Stories which also now has over 250 million users. People are sending 55 billion messages and sharing 4.5 billion photos per day. We have been getting an increasing number of reports about them over the past couple of days. That figure has since grown to 1.3 billion. More users of course supports Facebook's ad business, which received $9.16 billion in revenues, up 47 percent year-on-year. This only goes to show how popular WhatsApp really is and how people are taking advantage of the service effectively across the globe.
