Facebook Messenger is growing by leaps and bounds. The company announced Wednesday that its instant messaging application, which will soon allow encryption end to end, generates over 1,000 million users every month, just like WhatsApp.

Last April, Facebook announced that 900 million people were those who used Facebook Messenger per month, the application that currently sits as the second most popular in iOS of all time, behind an app that can not take another place, Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the popular social network, demonstrates once again why he is the king of the application market. According to the company, in almost all countries of the world, people use Messenger every day in very different ways: business and personal.

For some time now Zuckerberg and his team focused their efforts on promoting this ‘app’. One of its latest developments is that you can now make calls in a group of up to 50 people. A new possibility to follow ticking away rivals like Hangouts of Google, and Skype, from Microsoft. According to Facebook, 10% of all calls made globally, are performed via Messenger.

But from a professional point of view, Messenger has come a long way. In fact, in the last conference for developers, Zuckerberg announced that artificial intelligence would be key to his app. Facebook has long works in his own virtual assistant, Facebook M, which is integrated into the messaging application. It is the best tool with which users are served by other virtual robot users. Artificial intelligence, in this sense, is being the best ally of companies.

For this reason, every month it generates more than 1,000 million users, and the number of messages sent has doubled over the last year.

Since the Platform Messenger opened, they have launched more than 18,000 “bots” and more than 23,000 developers have registered to use the tools it has to offer.

Facebook to stop chat from mobile web.

The social network seeks to grow the number of users of the messaging application and to do so, they will remove the chat service for mobile browser version.

We saw it coming since the social network announced the inability to use the version for browsers, but failed to consolidate. Facebook wants to strengthen its Messenger instantant application, with which paradoxically competes with its “friend” WhatsApp.

According to the latest leaks that run through the internet, the social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg will force users, as stated two years ago when it was developed, to download the Messenger application to chat with Facebook contacts.

A movement, on the other hand, understandable view to expand the number of users of this application, with around 900 million users worldwide… one hundred less than WhatsApp. Since the launching of Facebook Messenger, the generic messging app stopped allowing the exchange of messages.

This impossibility is, so far, applied to the mobile version based on the Android operating system, the highest penetration in the world. Users are starting to receive a warning that the Messenger application will open automatically.
