WhatsApp’s popularity shows no signs of slowing.
The world’s biggest messaging service has just revealed its getting even bigger, with 900 million active monthly users.
The astonishing figure means WhatsApp has added 200 million users in just seven months and puts it on course for one billion fans by the end of the year.
Founder Jan Koum, posted the news in a Facebook status update, tagged with the social network’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.
And according to data from a number of statistic firms, the staggering monthly user base comfortably makes WhatsApp the most popular messenger in the world.
Its closest rival, Messenger, is also owned by Facebook and has 700 million users.

WhatsApp has added a number of new features in recent months including voice calls and the ability to send messages via your computer.
The messaging firm was purchased by Facebook for a cool $22billion (£13billion) last year and its incredible growth may end up making that a bargain price.
