WhatsApp hits 500 million user milestone


When last we heard from WhatsApp regarding its user base, the chat app boasted 430 million users. Following its acquisition by Facebook for what is frankly a stupidly large amount of money, the popular app has increased its collection of users to the half-billion mark.

WhatsApp made the milestone announcement via the company’s blog, citing growth in countries like India, Brazil, Mexico and Russia for the additional 70 million people joining the service.

A couple of numbers were also given in the brief announcement. According to the company, users are sharing 700 million photos a day while video number around 100 million. A day. That’s a lot of content for a chat application but we’re pretty sure that Facebook is pleased about that.
