WhatsApp reaches 1.5 billion user milestone, claims Facebook CEO
New Delhi: Whatsapp continues to grow in instant messaging space. In the last few months, the Facebook-owned company had put some other rival apps behind because it brought the app to the stuff with the necessary features and introduced a dedicated app for small and medium businesses. As a result, instant messenger has touched the 1.5 billion new user's landmark. This number was announced by Forward CEO Mark Zuckerberg in Q4 of 2017, which has just come out.

Zuckerberg said that 60 billion messages are sent every day. By July last year, the platform had gathered on 1.3 billion users, of which 1 billion active users were active. In order to bring this in context, when Facebook acquired Wattset for $ 19 billion in 2014, the messaging firm had 450 million monthly active users and 315 million daily active users, as mentioned by TechnicalLobby.

During the earnings call, Zuckerberg added that Facebook and its proprietary services, watches and Instagram took the top two when it comes to story-sharing products.

Facebook is unlikely to generate more revenue than its WhatsApp platform, thanks to WhatsApp for business right now, the app is free but social media giant may soon start charging business customers for the service. This service was introduced last year and eventually it was officially available in India earlier this month.

WhatsApp for Business is built on the same platform as WhatsApp Messenger. However, it has some additional features. Includes verified profiles with features such as quick answers, greetings, and still messages. App users can use messaging statistics for a while. It is available to Android users so far, however, the company has said that it plans to roll the app in other platforms as well. But there is no specific time frame specified.
