Telegram, the encrypted messaging app that launched in 2013, now has 100 million monthly active users. In a blog post announcing the milestone, the company said 350,000 new users are joining the service every day, and that 15 billion messages are sent on the app daily. Telegram founder Pavel Durov revealed the company’s latest figures at a keynote speech at Mobile World Congress on Tuesday.
Telegram has seen sharp growth in recent months, adding 38 million monthly active users since May, though it still trails other messaging apps by a large margin. Earlier this month, Facebook-owned WhatsApp reached the 1 billion monthly active user mark, while Facebook Messenger reached 800 million monthly active users in January.
