Facebook-owned mobile messaging service, “What’s App,” crosses the 1 Billion user mark. Now 42 Billion Messages are being exchanged via Whats App.
The Social Networking Giant “Facebook” owned messaging service Whats App now has 1 Billion users and nearly 42 Billion Messages being exchanged daily, announced its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, on Tuesday.
WhatsApp Crosses the 1 billion user mark with 42 billion messages being exchanged daily.
According to Zuckerberg, One Billion people are now using WhatsApp. He further said that only a few services connect more than 1 Billion people. This milestone is a vital step in securing the whole world. Nearly 1.6 Billion Photos and 250 Million Videos are being shared daily in about 53 languages.
Mark Zuckerberg also said, “Whats App’s community almost doubled since it joined Facebook. We have added a feature you can call your dear ones from far away. We have made Whats App free for a lifetime and neutralized the annual subscription fee. He said that we are going to work to connect more and more people across the world to make it easier to communicate with businesses.
Whats App was founded by Ukrainian immigrants to America, namely Jan Koum and Brian Acton, 7 years ago. Facebook later purchased it for a whopping $19 Billion in 2014. Whats App omitted the annual subscription fee because it didn’t work well.
Whats App’s blog post says, “For many years, we’ve asked some people to pay a fee for using Whats App after their first year. We’ve found that this approach hasn’t worked well as we’ve grown.
What App hasn’t been able to charge hundreds of millions of users annual subscription fees but will not opt for advertisements, according to Whats App.
The Whats App users might be puzzled to know “How What’s App generates revenue without subscription fees,” and it said no to third-party advertisements.
According to sources, Whats App recently dropped annual subscription fees, but it doesn’t mean they will opt for ads on Whats App for revenue. So, this is about the App’s milestone of reaching 1 Billion users. We hope you loved this article; feel free to share this with your friends.
