It's now on it's way out of our solar system and nearing the edge of the Heliopause (the official edge of our solar system). Voyager 1 is currently a staggering 10-billion miles away and it issuing out "solid zeroes" which means it's not detecting any more outward movement from solar winds.

This is a very large achievement for the human race, sending something out this far and it not breaking down or faulting at all is a massive achievement in itself.
