Just in 2016, WhatsApp celebrated that 1 billion people used WhatsApp every month.
On July 26th they hit 1 Billion Daily Active Users. This means that ever single day 1 in every 7 people use WhatsApp to connect with their friends or family. I personally have been using WhatsApp ever since I got my first smartphone and rely on it for everyday, essential communication. It has become a requisite part of 1/7th of the world’s population.
This is an incredible milestone and (shown below) WhatsApp announces its ongoing and continued dedication to providing a superior messaging service for the world’s population.
Whether it’s sharing personalized 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. We are humbled that so many people are using these new features to connect with one another in their own special way.
As we celebrate this milestone, we’re committed more than ever to bringing you more useful features to enjoy, while delivering the reliability, simplicity, and security you expect with WhatsApp. Thank you for your continued support.
