Messaging apps create new opportunities for developers
Posted: Nov 25,2015
Social networks are still expanding at a time when messaging services are witnessing their eclipse. This has been confirmed by research experts associated with various consulting firms. Currently, messaging services are used by 2.5 billion users all round the globe, while some 1.1 billion additional users are expected to join by the end of 2018.
In comparison, the messaging apps are now being used by some 2 billion people, while an additional 400 million users are likely to surface within the next couple of years.
The market seems promising for developers that are aiming to develop apps with the advantage of current messaging platforms. A majority of regions depict healthy audiences for Facebook and Whatsapp Messenger, but a few of the local players are making the competition tougher with each passing day.
