Gmail achieved the milestone of one billion Android app downloads some time ago, but getting toÂ one billion Gmail accounts being active every month? That’s an entirely different matter.
Google announced this exact feat this morning duringÂ its earnings call, confirming that its monthly active user count had breached the billion user mark after reporting 900 million at last year’s Google I/O event. Gmail now joins the elite company of Google Search, Chrome, Android, Maps, YouTube and Google Play with a billion monthly users, but cruciallyÂ requires that the user choose to use Gmail over other email clients, whereas the other apps in the “one billion club” are undisputed leaders in their space.
In its call, Google didn’t mention Inbox at all and whether it is helping Gmail as a whole, but it definitely seems to be in an early experimental state for now. One thing’s for sure: Gmail is here to stay.
