The company said back in January that it had 700 million users, adding 100 million users to its system just three months later. At this rate, the Facebook-owned company should hit 1 billion users before the New Year. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg congratulated WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum, where she said: "900 million people now use WhatsApp every month to stay in touch with family and friends around the world. Congratulations to Jan Koum and everyone at WhatsApp on reaching this incredible milestone and for still finding time to make us all laugh".
