Gmail on Android became only the fourth app to reach 10 billion installs. The other three apps that reached the Google Play Store with over 10 billion installs are Google Play Services, YouTube, and Google Maps. Google email service has been very popular since its launch in April 2004. Google has also added a lot of features to Gmail recently. The latest is an update to Gmail’s undo send feature, which allows users to retrieve emails at different time intervals.
Gmail’s entry into the over $10 billion download club was first spotted by Android Police. It also details how Google Play Services, which reached 10 billion installs first, followed YouTube and Google Maps in that order. Gmail is the fourth app to reach that number on the Google Play Store.
Gmail now has a lot of great features. Recently, Google’s mail service offered options for different time frames – 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 20 seconds, or 30 seconds – during which users can undo a sent email. Previously, Gmail had a default five-second window to retrieve a message that was sent by mistake. The Undo Send functionality is available in Gmail for the web and the Gmail mobile apps.
Another recent update has arrived in Google Chat in Gmail. With this, users will be able to make 1:1 audio and video calls. The company has introduced the update specifically for mobile users on Android and iOS platforms. These calls can only be made to individual users who are in the chat list. Users will also see missed calls and details of ongoing calls from the Gmail chat list.
