WhatsApp Users Hit 700 million

And it keeps growing!

Popular mobile instant messaging service WhatsApp has just hit the 700 million user mark.
WhatsApp CEO and co-founder Jan Koum made the announcement on his Facebook page.
"Today, we're thrilled to share that WhatsApp has more than 700 million monthly active users. Additionally, every day our users now send over 30 billion messages. As humbled and excited as we are by these numbers and our continued growth, we're even more excited to keep building a great product in 2015," Koum said on his Facebook page.

"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. We promise to continue working hard to make WhatsApp even better."

The company is set to introduce voice-calling functionality in the near future, with new reports also claiming that it will introduce a driving mode to keep motorists focused.

WhatsApp was acquired by Facebook last year in a gargantuan $19-billion deal.
