WhatsApp hits 800 million users!!!
WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum announced on his Facebook page late last night that the messaging app now has 800 million monthly active users. That is a 33% increase since last August. By the end of the year, WhatsApp could have 1 billion monthly active users. That is a very important benchmark for the app.
The messenger recently received voice calling functionality on both Android and iOS devices, allowing it to compete on even more market fronts. New rumors now hint that the same functionality will be coming to Windows Phone devices pretty soon. The hunch is mostly based on a few allegedly leaked phrases, intended to make their way into the new version of the app on the said platform.
In any case, this move is quite natural and unified features across platforms have come to be expected. This new information does, however, give us a heads up that voice calls are coming to Windows Phone pretty soon.
