Microsoft announced that its Live Messenger instant messaging client has now achieved over 300 million users. Be that as it may, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) said those clients are spread out among 76 countries and 48 languages around the world. The declaration came using a post on Microsoft’s Inside Windows Live blog on Tuesday.
Jeff Kunins who is the group program manager for interpersonal interaction in Windows Live stated in the blog entry that individuals utilize Messenger for 163 billion minutes consistently, which is around 9.4 percent of the time users spend on the Internet around the world.
He also included that over 40% of the clients sign in every day (more than 130 million day by day users) and consistently, those clients share more than 1.5 billion discussions and send more than 9 billion messages.
While he didn’t give figures for the United States, however, Kunins provided figures in regards to a few other geographic regions.
For example, 65 percent of the people who use the Internet in Brazil utilize Live Messenger. Also, in Canada, 48 percent of Internet users utilize it, while just 39 percent in the United Kingdom do so.
In the meantime, 47 percent of Spanish clients, 49 percent of French clients, and 40 percent of Italian clients all utilization Microsoft’s instant messaging service. The statistics move up higher for Turkey with 73 percent of people who use the internet, and the Middle East and Africa with 63 percent, Mexico with 72 percent, while Singapore has a figure of 49 percent.
“At top circumstances, that supports more than 40 million ‘synchronous online connections,’ the quanlity of individuals marked in the meantime,” Kunins said in the post.
Microsoft has been advancing its Windows Live properties, including Live Messenger, for quite a while with mixed success. Despite the fact that its user numbers keep on climbing, the Live activity itself is as yet a cash failure; the organization admitted the previous summer.
In any case, Microsoft seems relentless in its yearning to move Live into the dark, however, it’s up to this point been insufficient on details regarding the public.
Kunins’ also said in the post that Messenger is one of the biggest scale communication and sharing services all over the world. He also added that they are contemplating the advancement of their role as a social application.
