At the DLD conference in Germany, the CEO of WhatsApp reported that the messaging app now sends over 54 billion messages each day, which is about 36 billion outbound and 18 billion inbound messages handles each day, an impressive figure when you come to think about it, especially when you take into account how many messages other applications handle, in fact mobile analyst Benedict Evans says that this even surpasses the amount of daily SMS messages sent and received globally.

Evan also mentioned that WhatsApp has over 430 million active monthly users.

All a great achievement from a company that only has 50 employees.
