Facebook Messenger has reached 1 Billion monthly active users

In the elite club of internet services with enough penetration to reach about 1/7th of the earth's population, members are few and far between. But now Facebook Messenger can say that it has earned the badge that gives it access to this exclusive circle. After getting to 1 Billion installs on the Play Store a year ago, Messenger is now boasting, for real, 1 Billion monthly active users.

Whatsapp, the other Facebook-owned chat service, got to 1 Billion monthly active users several months ago, in February, so Messenger is still playing catch-up with its in-house rival, but I'm sure Facebook is not crying over the friendly competition going on between these two.

You can now use Bitmoji on Snapchat

You can use a photo of yourself across the web, but if you want to have some fun and maintain a semblance of anonymity on the web, you can use a cartoony avatar instead. You could dig up your old Yahoo one, but chances are you've moved on. You're using a Bitmoji and creating comic strips about your friends.

Then you move your hilarity over into Snapchat. You're sending texts, dropping images, recording clips, and maybe even making the occasional reference to your comics. Now you can go a step further. Don't drop a link. Add your Bitmoji directly.

You can do that now.

Hey, remember that Google Arts & Culture tool that the company talked about for exactly one day? No? Well now it's back.

Check out the difference in the app below:

[Root access optional] Philips Sonicare's smart toothbrush app sinks its teeth into the Play Store

Never has the expression "put your money where your mouth is" been more accurate as it is with the Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum toothbrush. This mouthful of a name designates a smart toothbrush made by Philips that is electric, with sonic technology for up to 31000 strokes per minute, and Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone, and which costs a mouth-foaming, jaw-dropping, tongue-biting, teeth-gritting, $180. Unless you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth, this is a bitter pill to swallow, but you can grab it for $160 on Amazon now, with an additional $20 off from a coupon clip that applies at checkout — you should know the drill by now.

10 cents can go a long way these days on the Play Store. In recent times, you've been able to grab some cool games and apps for this sum — maybe a bit more or a bit less depending on your country — but the discounts have been heavily skewing toward select regions: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia, and sometimes the US and Canada and a few other countries joined in on the fun.

This deal though seems to be better in every way. One, it appears to be worldwide: I've checked dozens of countries around the world and they're all showing the game as discounted.
