A download milestone has been breached in the Google Play Store. The Gmail app has now been downloaded more than ten billion times by users (via “GoogleWatchBlog”). This makes the Android app only the fourth application in the store to reach this milestone. Previously it was the “Google Play Services”, which are an integral part of Android systems, as well as YouTube and Google Maps. The latter app had only been able to reach the milestone shortly before the turn of the year. Now Gmail joins the ranks of the top apps. Previously, Gmail had reached five billion downloads in 2019. Considering that the app has been available for download in the Play Store since 2010, that’s a lot of growth in a short time. Make the most of Gmail: 5 hidden features that every user should know
Gmail breaks milestone: Why are the apps so popular?
The apps that have managed more than ten billion downloads are mainly pre-installed applications. This means that as soon as a user buys an Android smartphone, they can often already be found on it. What’s interesting, though, is that Google doesn’t count these apps among the Play Store downloads. The apps are still an integral part of the experience on Android devices. If they are missing or uninstalled, users will apparently come back to the Play Store to download them. Other apps that are not integrated into the system have it a little more difficult. Only WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger have so far managed over five billion downloads.Gmail: The 5 most annoying functions of the software
