WHATSAPP HITS 800 MILLION ACTIVE USERS MONTHLY


Whatsapp continues to increase its number of active users. it reached 700 million monthly active 

users  back in january 2015.


Today, the company's Chief executive officer Jan Koum revealed that whatsapp now has 800 million 

monthly active users in just 3 months, faster than last time. it took 4 months to reach 700 million 

active users from 600 million.



Facebook announced whatsapp acquisition in february last year that finally completed in October for 

22 billion dollars. Earlier this year, it introduced whatsapp web that enables users send messages 

through browsers. web support was first launched on google chrome and later it was expanded to 

firefox and opera browsers. Whatsapp also got calling feature back in February and this was initially 

intended for all android users without an invitation.



For me, i think the increase in active user is due mainly to the latest voice call ability for android and 

blackberry users. This is because the feature is so user friendly and more so, it helps reduce the cost 

of voice calls from carriers.



This is indeed a good news to whatsapp development team at whatsapp Inc.
