WhatsApp more than doubles its active user count in just 10 months

Long gone are the days where only someone with a Blackberry could revel in the joys of instant online messaging. We won’t say luckily, but luckily those days are over, and there is little doubt that WhatsApp is now the reigning king when it comes to mobile messaging apps.

The messaging service has become so popular, in fact, that WhatsApp’s CEO Jan Koum announced earlier this week that his app can now boast of 430 million active users, more than double the amount of WhatsApp users in April 2013.

The amount of messages sent via the app have also seen a huge leap, from 20 billion per day, back in the distant recesses of 2013, to 50 billion a day as of this month.
