While the achievement doesn’t mean that there are over 1 billion active users as it merely indicates the number of times the app was downloaded, it still is an incredible feat. Messenger joins the Facebook app and Whatsapp to become the company’s third app to cross a billion downloads on Android.

Facebook crossed the milestone last year while Whatsapp crossed the milestone earlier this year. Google is the only other company to have more than a billion downloads on Facebook as its apps YouTube, Gmail, Maps and Google Search have also crossed the milestone.
