One of the most revolutionary applications of recent times, WhatsApp APK has managed to change the very perspective of the way people see things in the markets of modern day communication. The application has not just changed the way people communicate with each other, but has also pulled out the previous means of communication out of existence! The arrival of WhatsApp was a major threat to the existence of SMS as well as internet based IM messengers like Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger. Today, WhatsApp has taken them all and thrown them out of the ball-park as the company has hit over a billion monthly active users!
The timing of the event has been quite surprising as the announcement came on the same day as Google announced that Gmail has now hit a billion users!
WhatsApp APK has been around for a very short while when compared to Google, and the company has shown a monumental growth in this time. A billion users means that one out of every seven people in the planet uses the services of WhatsApp, which is a massive number! Facebook owned WhatsApp has been progressing faster with every passing day, as the company recently announced that the WhatsApp APK is now free of cost, scrapping the $1 fee per year it came with.
In September 2015 it was declared that WhatsApp has 900 million users. However today it has been made official that the WhatsApp APK now has a billion users, meaning it grew by a 100 million users in just the past 4 months!
“Even as we celebrate this achievement, our focus remains the same. Every day, our team continues to work to improve WhatsApp’s speed, reliability, security and simplicity. We’re excited to see how far we’ve come. But now, it’s back to work – because we still have another 6 billion people to get on WhatsApp, and a long way left to go.”
Another 6 Billion People To Get On WhatsApp – claims, the WhatsApp Blog, looking at the future quite ambitiously. It has indeed been a great journey of connecting people so far.
