WhatsApp and Gmail cross the 1 billion barrier

If you are still doubting that we have moved to the era of Generation C then this will perhaps convenience you. Gmail is now the sixth Google service to cross the 1 billion barrier, while WhatsApp becomes Facebook’s second most-used app.

Although Facebook remains the most popular social media platform in the world, WhatsApp took half the time as Facebook to reach the one billion mark. Apple has also announced recently that the total number of its devices across the globe surpassed one billion.

Google’s other 1 billion or more MAU services include: Google search, Chrome (both mobile and desktop), Google Maps, YouTube, Google’s Android and therefore also Google Play.

According to Google, there are 1.4 billion active Android users per month, but that does not include all the devices that do not use Google’s version of Android, of which China and its 900 million-plus smartphone users make up a large proportion.
