The instant messaging giant, WhatsApp, now has a record 50 million active users in India. It wasn’t long back when the company declared having reached 48 million active users in India and the prediction of soon reaching 50 million.

India’s largest telecom operator, Airtel, has now signed up with WhatsApp to introduce low-budget data packs for its subscribers starting from Rs. 36 to Rs. 49 a month.

The company was acquired by Facebook in a massive $19b deal and it also crossed 500 million monthly active users.
