Gmail achieved the milestone of one billion Android app downloads some time ago, but getting to one billion Gmail accounts being active every month? That’s an entirely different matter.

Google announced this exact feat this morning during 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 crucially 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.

What do you think about one billion Gmail accounts being used every month? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Then again, you need a Google account to use and Android device with Google Play, and easiest way to get that would be to create a Gmail account.

        Listen I am not sure you know this – but internet prostitution is illegal and i guess your neighbors “mate’s” behind must be very tired from making all that money.

    I was a huge Yahoo mail user but of course over the years, being on android, slowly moving alot of emails from Yahoo to Gmail, now I hardly use Yahoo, its really clunky anymore. My goal is to transfer all my old emails to gmail, which is no easy task, yahoo has a tight grasp, and eventually log out. Its sad, since I been on yahoo since 2000

      I know right, it’s really hard to transfer emails from Yahoo to Gmail. I’m also a die-hard fan of Yahoo before but now since we use Gmail in all Android device, I choose to use Gmail instead.
