Google had offered half of what Facebook did for WhatsApp
Washington, Feb. 21 : Search giant Google had reportedly made an offer of 10 billion dollars to acquire WhatsApp that has now fallen into Facebook's kitty.
Before WhatsApp agreed for Facebook's 19 billion dollar deal, rumours suggest that Google also tried its luck at acquiring the popular messaging service with over 450 million monthly users and one million adding each day.
According to The Verge, in a brief report on the rumored offer, Fortune noted that two separate sources have confirmed Google offered to purchase WhatsApp, but it's unclear exactly when the search giant attempted to arrange a deal.
The report stated that the bid came without a promise of a Google board seat, unlike Facebook's agreement.
WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum would take a place at Facebook's board and has assured that 'nothing' would change for users immediately as Facebook plans to run WhatsApp independently, much like Instagram.
