One billion people now use Facebook’s chat app Messenger every month, the company announced on Wednesday.

That makes Messenger the fourth Facebook product to enter the elite “1,000,000,000 club,” along with the company’s other chat app, WhatsApp; Groups; and the main social network, which actually gets more than 1 billion users every day.
