Facebook has recently announced that the Android version of their Messenger app has been downloaded over 1 billion times. Facebook’s VP of Messaging Products commemorated this landmark in a Facebook post yesterday.

“Happy to make it to the very exclusive Android 1 billion+ downloads club.” – David Marcus

Facebook Messenger has provided us with a indispensable replacement for text messaging, phone calls, video calls and picture sharing as well. We can send gifs or voice clips just like the other hoards of messaging apps like Whatsapp and Viber. Recently, Facebook also integrated an improved location sharing option in the app.

These new features and the constant improvement in the app have played a big part in Messenger’s reach to 1 billion downloads. This clearly shows how Facebook has become such a routine part of our lives by keeping us connected to so many people.
