- In April 2017, 6.7 million unique active users signed into a third-party app using Azure AD. As they say, that number is growing 10-12% every month.
- Those 6.7 million unique active users signed into more than 190k third-party apps! And that number grows by 10k to 20k apps per month.

Who would have imagined that customers would use Azure AD with….. Google Apps??? That’s really exciting!
