Google executive Sundar Pichai revealed today that the company’s Gmail app for Android has passed the 1 billion download mark. The app’s Google Play listing actually ticked over to the 1 billion+ range a couple days ago, but we’ll take Pichai’s official pronouncement as the final word.

Gmail is the first app to cross the milestone if you don’t count the background Google Play services app. The race is on to see who’s next, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Flappy Bird made it when it comes back to Android later this summer.
