Facebook Messenger chief David Marcus released a statement saying; “We remain focused on helping connect people to the people and business who matter most. Thank you to everyone who uses Messenger around the world, we’re looking forward to connecting the next billion.”
The milestone is a significant achievement for Marcus. The former PayPal exec joined Facebook two years ago when Messenger was still shy of 300 million users.
Messenger has now become the second most popular iOS app of all time and has over 1billion downloads on Android with over 1 billion messages sent every month.
