The most used messaging app on the planet, WhatsApp, is already the most popular application in the world. Has surpassed Facebook in the rankings and, at last, he has achieved something that he has been striving for for a long time.
WhatsApp is the most popular app
The web App Annie has published a report in which this fact is reported. WhatsApp is the app # 1. This is something that sooner or later would happen because … who doesn’t have it installed on their mobile?
And it is that all the necessary conditions have been given for this to happen. We will tell you about them below.
WhatsApp is the most popular app in the world since September 2018:
It was in September 2018 when the messaging app surpassed Facebook. And this has been motivated by the following:
- The growth of the messaging app in emerging countries such as India, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey and Russia.
- The latest Facebook scandals. This is something that has not been good for the social network and its number of users may have stagnated and even begins to fall.
- The simplicity of use and the constant improvements that the application is receiving, update after update. And, since Facebook bought WhatsApp, the app has not stopped improving. We went from the famous new versions that only corrected errors, to versions that always bring interesting news to the application.
- The decline in service drops. Now they happen but very occasionally. Remember that, a few years ago, the falls were constant. The switch to Facebook servers It seems that it has come from pearls.
These are the four reasons that have catapulted WhatsApp to lead the ranking of the most popular apps.
But this is not bad news for Facebook. As we have commented, the messaging app belongs to Zuckerberg’s company since 2016, for which it paid close to 22,000 million dollars. Now, they have plans to monetize WhatsApp with ads, so more than bad it is very good news for the most used social network company in the world.
