  • WhatsApp hits a billion users a DAY (and in February last year it was only being used by a billion a month)

WhatsApp has over 200 million users in India, and given the popularity of the app, it will likely continue to grow in the market. The monthly active users base has been bumped up to 1.3 billion, and nearly 55 billion messages are shared every day in 60 supported languages.

Mark Zuckerberg also announced that 250 million use Whatsapp Status every day, which, to be honest, is a bit of a surprise.

Whatsapp's numbers reveal that most of its users use the service every day. Facebook announced that WhatsApp now has one billion active users every day, and the Snapchat-clone Status feature is being used by 250 million users on a daily basis, which is a bit of surprise.

According to the company the app is used in more than 60 languages. Whether it's sharing personalised photos and videos, connecting through video calling, or keeping friends updated throughout the day with Status, communicating on WhatsApp has never been easier or more personal. The company has now 1.3 billion monthly active users. WhatsApp's Status feature that is pretty much the same thing as Snapchat's Stories has 250million daily active users whereas Snapchat itself has only 166 million daily users of the entire app. Not just that, WhatsApp has also reported that the service has over a billion monthly active users.

Asked yesterday by an analyst about WhatsApp's revenue prospects compared to Messenger, Facebook's CFO, David Wehner, said the company isn't sharing detailed engagement figures by messaging platform, but noted differences in usage for each by region.

The emails, being sent to Whatsapp users are thought to be targeting bank details of users who may not be aware that the platform is now free to use.
