Gmail is the fourth app to reach this number on the Google Play store.

Gmail's now got a lot of cool features.

Gmail previously had a standard five-second window to recall a mistakenly sent message. The Undo Send message functionality is available on Gmail for Web and the Gmail mobile apps.

Another recent 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 specifically for mobile users on Android and iOS platforms. These calls can be made only with individual users available in the chat list. Users will also see missed calls and ongoing call details from the chat roster on Gmail.
