WhatsApp is 10 Years Old Now: Major Milestones Achieved

Congratulations and Celebrations! WhatsApp has turned 10! It seems like its just a few years that WhatsApp was launched but its a decade actually. Like me, many users would be surprised to know that WhatsApp came into being 10 years back. Having more than 1.5 billion users every month, WhatsApp has introduced something new on and off for its users. On WhatsApp 10th Birthday, it has shared infographic report revelling the major milestone received.

In 2009, initially, WhatsApp was launched for iPhone and later for Android too. By the end of December, it got its first big feature that was the ability to share photos and videos. It was the best feeling to had this feature as at that time there were no such user-friendly apps to share your memories with loved ones. At that time Orkut was a website with which people used to share their picture but it was not secure and lacked some fundamental features. In no time WhatsApp has become the widely used app for launching new features which is evident from this that in the year 2010, WhatsApp launched location sharing feature and in 2011 people got the facility for Group chat.

WhatsApp Infographics has also mentioned Voice Messages Feature when it was acquired by Facebook in 2014. In 2016, WhatsApp launched end-to-end-encryption and video calling in November. So WhatsApp had a great journey and it is appraisable.
