WhatsApp, the leading mobile messaging app has once again revealed its growing numbers. Moments before the DLD Conference in Munich, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced the mobile messaging service now has more than 430 million monthly active users globally. Reported by BGR, this also means that the messaging app has added over 30 million users in a month, from the 400 million users it had claimed during the previous month.
WhatsApp, which is undoubtedly the most popular messaging app in the world and in the country, has also shared that it has now over 35 million active users from India. This also means that the app added more than 5 million users in a month, from the 30 million active users it had claimed recently.
Kaum also revealed that over 50 billion messages are sent and received (incoming and outgoing) every day over WhatsApp. In fact in the month of August, 2013 the company had shared that the app processes 11 billion sent messages and 20 billion received messages, or 31 billion total on a daily basis.
Apparently, the four year old messaging app in the country has been adding approximately 5 million active users every month. The latest numbers come close on the heels of its second operator tie-up with Tata Docomo in the country. The first being the Reliance deal which the company had launched for its GSM subscribers as part of a promotion and considered to be a success. According to the deal Tata Docomo offered unlimited WhatsApp usage to its subscribers at Rs. 15 for 15 days.
