The facebook-owned messaging app, WhatsApp is now home to 2 billion users across the world.
WhatsApp rose from 900 million monthly active users in 2015 and 1,5 billion users they had two years ago.
“We are excited to share that, as of today, WhatsApp supports more than two billion users around the world.
Mothers and fathers can reach their loved ones no matter where they are. Brothers and sisters can share moments that matter. Coworkers can collaborate, and businesses can grow by easily connecting with their customers.
Private conversations that once were only possible face-to-face can now take place across great distances through instant chats and video calling. There are so many significant and special moments that take place over WhatsApp and we are humbled and honored to reach this milestone.”
The app now comes just under Facebook, which is home to 2.5 billion users. The app was bought by Facebook back in 2014 for a whopping $19 billion.
WhatsApp has since advanced with introducing a business version of the app, end-to-end encryption and status updates (similar to Instagram stories).
