Google has also adds some great features which results in the increase in active usersbase of Gmail. The features are like New Gmail Confidential mode, Email Scheduling, etc.
Moreover, Google also annoucned that Inbox by Gmail will be shut down by the March 2019. Although the Inbox userbase is very less that Gmail, but still it is also one of the reason for the increase in active userbase of GMail. Everyone using smartphone or internet might have an Gmail account now days because of its easy UI. Lets hope google will make it more powerfull email client and which is easy to use.
