With more than 1.5 billion active users each month, WhatsApp is the most popular messenger app in the world, with millions of active users each month. WhatsApp 2.19.262 Beta is now available to download with improvements and bug fixes.
WhatsApp Is The Most Popular Instant Messaging App
The service was founded in 2009 by two former Yahoo! employees. The idea surfaced after one of the developers bought an iPhone and realized that a dedicated messaging app would be quite successful as the smartphone market was in the early stages of development. After adding a new member to the team, they started to work on the project.
The first version of the app was popular among a limited user base. After Apple added the push notifications feature WhatsApp integrated the new function with the release of the second version of the app and the number of downloads continued exponentially.
Then, users had to pay a small fee to use the app. The success of the app attracted new investors, and more people continued to install the app. Facebook saw the promise of the app and decided to acquire the company in 2014. Versions for other operating systems were released soon after.
