Whats App 2.0 was released with a messaging component and the number of active users suddenly increased to 250,000.Acton was still unemployed and managing another startup, and he decided to join the company.Whats App was switched from a free to paid service to avoid growing too fast, mainly because the primary cost was sending verification texts to users.In December 2009, the ability to send photos was added to Whats App for the i Phone. Facebook, which was advised by Allen & Co, paid billion in cash, billion in Facebook shares, and (advised by Morgan Stanley) an additional billion in restricted stock units granted to Whats App's founders, Koum and Acton.The Commission alleged that in 2014, when Facebook acquired the messaging app, it "falsely claimed it was technically impossible to automatically combine user information from Facebook and Whats App." However, in the summer of 2016 Whats App had begun sharing user information with its parent company, allowing information such as phone numbers to be used for targeted Facebook advertisements.Facebook acknowledged the breach, but said the errors in their 2014 filings were "not intentional." Until 2017 Whats App positioned itself as a solution for a single party with a single smartphone to communicate with another such party, enabling small businesses to use the platform to communicate with customers, After months at beta stage, the application eventually launched in November 2009 exclusively on the App Store for the i Phone.Participate in our Fun Mumbai Chat Room and do Video Chat with other Girls and Boys for free.

Koum named the app "Whats App" to sound like "what's up".
On February 24, 2009, he incorporated Whats App Inc. However, because early versions of Whats App often crashed or got stuck at a particular point, Koum felt like giving up and looking for a new job, upon which Acton encouraged him to wait for a "few more months".
