Google Messages passes one billion installs on the Play Store

Google's Messages app is packed with features, including a built-in markup tool, reminderscontext-aware recommendations, a dark mode, RCS support, and a web interface. Most of these aren't available in other texting apps, especially the ones manufacturers pre-install on their phones, which make Messages particularly popular. In fact, it's so praised by users that it just passed one billion downloads on the Play Store, less than a year after reaching half as many installs.
