WhatsApp status is more popular than most people think. The status now has 175 million users each day, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on the Q1 earnings call.
Many users were unhappy with the introduction of the new status function back in February. Now, ten weeks later, it seems that the function is actually quite popular.
The Snapchat clone has already more users than Snapchat itself. Snapchat counted 161 million users in February.
More features to come
Despite the difficult introduction phase, that even forced WhatsApp to bring back the old status, it seems the WhatsApp Status is becoming a success.
The new status will get improvements in the future, WhatsApp told Whatsappen.nl earlier. In the next six months new features and improvements will be rolled out.
