Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said during the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call last week that WhatsApp was approaching 1 billion monthly active users, and that milestone was surpassed Monday.

News of the cross-platform messaging application topping 1 billion MAUs was shared in a WhatsApp blog post and by WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum and Zuckerberg.

WhatsApp said in its blog post:

As of today, 1 billion people are using WhatsApp.
