The number of people saying what s up with WhatsApp has officially made the messaging app the most popular Android chatting app in the world.
And with WhatsApp s eagerly anticipated video-calling feature soon to be unveiled, the gap between WhatsApp and just about everyone else may continue to grow.
The app is particularly favored in Brazil, India, Mexico, and Russia.
And part of its appeal lies in its ability to transcend geographic borders — throughout Europe, South America, Asia, and Africa, people can t seem to get enough of WhatsApp and its global network of chatters and texters.
In Indonesia, the app is installed on 87.5 percent of Android phones, and is indeed the chosen method of smartphone communication.
This varies dramatically from the rate of installation in other countries — in the U.S., for example, only 0.42 percent of Android users have installed the BlackBerry app.
