Gmail becomes 4th app on Android to have 10 billion installs



The Gmail app on Android has become the fourth app to hit 10 billion installs. The three apps that have reached the milestone of over one billion installs from the Google Play store are Google Play Services, YouTube, and Google Maps. Google’s email service has been a favorite service for people since its launch in April 2004. Google has been adding a lot of features to Gmail lately. The latest is an update to Gmail’s Undo Send feature that allows users to recall emails in different time frames.

Gmail’s entry into the billion download club was first spotted by Android Police. It also detailed how Google Play Services reached the 10 billion install milestone, followed in that order by YouTube and Google Maps. Gmail is the fourth app to reach this number on the Google Play Store.

Gmail now has a lot of great features. Recently, Google’s mail service offered options for various time-frames – 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 20 seconds or 30 seconds – in which users could undo sent emails. Gmail previously had a standard five-second window for recalling an accidentally sent message. The Undo Send Message functionality is available in Gmail for the web and on the Gmail mobile apps.

Recently another update came for Google Chat in Gmail. With this, users will be able to make 1:1 audio and video calls. The company has brought the update exclusively for mobile users on Android and iOS platforms. These calls can only be made with individual users available in the chat list. Users will also see missed calls and ongoing call details from the chat roster on Gmail.
