WhatsApp has been a name which has today become a household name.
Everyone from your grandmother to your pet dog is now using the application on their devices, while the world has witnessed a massive shift in trend from IM clients on computers such as the Yahoo Messenger to number based messaging services like WhatsApp.
WhatsApp has been witnessing a massive growth off late, and in the years to come the numbers are expected to grow even more.
With over a billion users on the app already, and over a million joining the application every day, the company has been gaining major goodwill, especially after they got acquired by Facebook.
WhatsApp has become the leading name in the world of communication, and with over 850 million monthly active users, they are getting hotter by the day!
WhatsApp, ever since it was acquired by Facebook has seen rapid growth and has been doing really well in the markets.
The company has been growing at a rapid pace and has been booming like never before.
WhatsApp’s success can be attributed to the fact that they have been introducing a large number of new features to retain the users.
The company has recently introduced web version for whatsapp, and a voice calling feature – two of the features which were the most popular ones when it came to WhatsApp users’ demands.
The company keeps giving the users what they want and they are doing pretty well. Off late there had been this news in the markets that WhatsApp plans to launch a video calling service soon, and it was expected that announcements would be made by September.
However, as of now, it appears that the plans have been scrapped and there would be no video calling feature on WhatsApp, atleast for the foreseeable future.
The company has released no official statements claiming to release it or to not release it, but market speculations have now been claiming that the company will not be releasing a video calling upgrade.
There were rumours that the company will include a paid upgrade for video calling where the users can enjoy the best video calling features at as less as $12 a year, (or $1.5/month).
However, now that the things are getting clearer and the dust has settled, it appears that the company might not be interested in doing so anymore. Only time can tell.
