Another one of Google’s products has reached the illustrious mark of 1 billion monthly active users. Google’s parent company, Alphabet, announced the milestone for Gmail during its quarterly earnings report earlier today.
Thanks a billion for helping us make Gmail better and better!https://t.co/Rd82YqwGjl

It was only eight months ago when Gmail had 900 million monthly active users, meaning 100 million people either returned to or joined Google’s email platform since May. Gmail has been around for more than a decade, so maintaining 100 million additional monthly active users in eight months is an impressive feat.
This puts Gmail up there with Android, Chrome, Google Search, Google Play, Google Maps, and YouTube as Google’s services with 1 billion monthly active users.
The other little statistic mentioned by Alphabet is that somewhere around 10% of replies from Google Inbox are automated.
