WhatsApp continues to grow, even after being acquired by Facebook. The instant messaging service has recently revealed that they have surpassed 500 million active users. Most of these users come from Brazil, India, Mexico, and Russia; which Engadget has pointed is also where Facebook has a very large number of active users.The company has also revealed that users are also sharing more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos every single day. “We could go on, but for now, it’s more important that we get back to work – because here at WhatsApp, we’re just getting started,” wrote CEO Jan Koum mentioned in a post on the company blog.
Koum made no mention of the WhatsApp VOIP service that has been rumoured to be arriving at some point. Despite the fact that screenshots of the app were leaked across the internet early last month. It could be that the integration with Facebook is delaying the launching of the app; although it could just be the case of not having anything to announce just yet.
