Gmail hits 1 billion monthly active users

Play, Maps, and YouTube.Gmail has been growing at a steady clip. Google had announced back in May that Gmail was up to 900 million monthly active users. That announcement came along with the impressive Inbox app leaving behind its invite system and being made available to everyone. Of course, Gmail isn't Google's first billion-user service, it is actually the seventh, joining the ranks of Search, Chrome, Android, Google
Another interesting stat about Gmail that Google provided was about smart replies, which are the automatic suggestions for quick responses to emails based on machine analysis of the text in the message you received. According to Google, Gmail's automatically-generated suggested responses account for 10 percent of all the replies made in its mobile app.
Have any of you out there used quick replies? What was your experience like?

Of course. How many million of android device out there and include the iOS. It is mandatoty for android device because you can download any apps if you don't sign-in your Gmail account. Can you sign-in in your Google store using your Yahoo or Hotmail account? It's a BIG NO. The same with Windows phone. While in iOS can be use Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail.

Ok, I get what you're saying but.... In iOS how do you sign into iTunes or the Apple App Store? Apple doesnt have an email address anymore (IIRC) so its a lil apples to oranges comparison here.

Actually no, not bitter (that's why I said "little trolling" - having fun with the facts). But Apple will never compete with gmail - they don't need to: gmail needs users because that's one of the services to advertise thru. Apple does not use iCloud email as a means of revenue - it's provided as a service to their users just like nearly all Apple services. Google's services are ad driven and supported. It would make no sense for Apple to need more iCloud email users... I hope you understand this (I'm not trolling or anything). Basically there are different motives for these two companies. Apple boasts about sales because their business is selling hardware. Google boasts about users because their revenue comes from ad views. Both are great at what they do.
