WhatsApp adds 100 million new users in just 4 months, now has over 700 million

Mobile messaging service WhatsApp now has over 700 million monthly active users, up from the 600 million the company reported around four months ago. The announcement was made by co-founder and CEO Jan Koum in a Facebook post, where he also revealed that WhatsApp users are now sending more than 30 billion messages per day.

“Most of all, we’re grateful that so many of you are using WhatsApp to stay in touch with your friends and family, business colleagues and classmates,” Koum said.

The app has added 200 million new users ever since it was acquired last year by Facebook for a whopping $19 billion. The news comes nearly a month after photo-sharing service Instagram, which was also acquired by Facebook back in 2012, announced that around 300 million people use its app every month.
