MessageMe launched around 75 days ago and the application has hit 5 million registered users already. This is up from 1 million in the first ten days of launching. Earlier this month, MessageMe raised $10 million in funding from investors like Google Ventures and Andreessen Horowitz. MessageMe is sending out around 1,500 notifications per second and is handling around 8 image uploads per second.
The MessageMe app allows Android and iOS users to message each other with pictures, doodles, videos, music, and location information. The chats can involve groups as well.
“We?ve got some groundbreaking additions in the pipeline, aiming to change the way we look at communication happening in our world. We?re excited to help lead a team that pushes the envelope on what?s possible, while focusing on first-class products,” said MessageMe in a blog post.
