Gmail hit a new milestone with 10 billion installs
Gmail for Android has now achieved 10 billion installs on the Google Play Store. This marks a new milestone for Google’s email service.
Currently, billions of people use Google’s email app for both business and personal email accounts. Owing to the fact that it comes pre-installed on practically all Android handsets.
After Google Play Services, YouTube, and Google Maps, the total number of Gmail app installations on Android has topped 10 billion, making it the fourth on Google Play Store to do so.
While Gmail comes preinstalled on many Android devices. It is only the most recent in a long line of Google apps to surpass the 10 billion download mark. Since its inception in 2004, Google’s email service has grown in popularity and recently incorporated a slew of new capabilities.
While Gmail has been around for a long time and has over 10 billion users. That includes Google’s other email service, Inbox by Gmail, debuted in 2015 and was shut down just four years later. Many of Inbox’s innovations, such as the option to snooze emails, Smart Reply, nudges, and high-priority notifications, eventually made their way into the main Gmail interface.
What is new in Gmail features?
Gmail now has exciting features for the web and mobile apps that allow users to recall emails within different time frames, with options ranging from five to ten, twenty, or thirty seconds to cancel a sent email, as opposed to the previous standard five-second window to recall a message sent in error.
Gmail’s Google Chat has recently been enhanced to allow users to make one-on-one audio and video calls. While this development is primarily for Android and iOS users, these calls can only be made with particular individuals in the discussion list, with users being able to check missed calls and current call details from the discussion list on the Android and iOS platforms.
