Milestone for Fb messenger, crosses more than 1.3 billion active monthly users

Milestone for Fb messenger, crosses more than 1.3 billion active monthly users”

With this report coming in, it seems, Facebook Messenger is moving at par with WhatsApp which also has also recorded 1.3 billion monthly active users.

Despite the sluggish Messenger Day growth, Messenger itself is doing just fine.

Facebook Messenger reaching 1.3 billion monthly active users now has it catching up to one of the company's other services.

David Marcus, who heads Facebook's (FB) Messenger unit, announced that the social media giant's messaging platform now boasts 1.3 billion active monthly users.

For comparison, Instagram Stories took just two months to get to 100 million users, while WhatsApp Status reached 175 million users in merely 10 weeks.

Having begun rolling out the feature to select audiences a month ago, YouTube's newest feature has been in the planning stages since at least previous year, with certain countries, such as Canada and Latin America having had access to it before the majority of users. It then needed 9 months to go from there to 1.2 billion.

Basically, this new feature turns YouTube into Facebook Messenger, allowing you to share videos with contacts within the app and conduct conversations with them. That feature hit 245 million monthly users as of December, when it added the ability for six users to video chat at once via a six-way split screen. In core markets, it's now a matter of focusing more on retaining existing users as it approaches saturation. Both are owned by Facebook. The closest competitor is China-based WeChat which had less than a billion users in May this year.
