With this, Gmail joins six of Google’s other popular projects, including Search, Chrome, Android, Maps, YouTube and Google Play that all also have more than a billion active users.
The last time Google announced updated numbers for Gmail, the company also said that 75 percent of Gmail users now access their accounts on mobile devices. The company didn’t update this number today, though chances are they haven’t changed all that much.
With Inbox, Google recently launched a new email experience on top of Gmail, though given that this is still a bit of an experimental product, it’s probably not driving a lot of new users to Gmail. It is, however, Google’s platform for experimenting with what a modern email client could look like, and Google is also using it to bring some of its machine learning smarts to its users.
