WhatsApp is currently the most popular mobile messaging app, the app was purchased by Facebook in a deal with was worth $16 billion, and now the company’s founder, Han Koum has announced their latest milestone.
Back in April, WhatApp had around 500 million active monthly users, and now the company has announced on Twitter, that they now have 600 million monthly active users.
Now serving 600,000,000 monthly active users. Yes, active and registered are very different types of numbers…

Other similar messaging app company’s have published their users in terms of registered users, rather than the actual users that use the service on a monthly basis. WhatsApp is becoming increasingly popular, and you can see why Facebook purchased the company for 16 billion.
It will be interesting to see how many users WhatsApp has by the end of the year, and we wonder how long it will take the company to reach 1 billion monthly active users.
