Back in April, Koum announced WhatsApp had hit 800 million monthly active users. As for a monetization strategy, that remains to be seen, aside from charging users $1 per year to use the service (legacy users still are using it for free).

Recently, WhatsApp Web added support for iPhone users, allowing them to chat with the service from their Mac. You still using WhatsApp? It’s one of the easiest ways to have group chats with iOS, Android and other smartphone platform users.
