Google has a staggering 3 billion active Android devices across the globe
Google is really trying to flex on Apple.
Google I/O is currently underway, and the company is showcasing new technology and highlighting milestones it has reached since the last I/O conference in 2019.
One interesting tidbit that was revealed during yesterday’s livestream regards the number of active Android devices that are out there. It’s a staggering 3 billion. That puts Apple’s iPhone to shame, which just broke the 1 billion mark earlier this year.
What makes this even more interesting is that this number is based on devices registered to Google Play. So, other Android-based devices that use different stores aren’t even being accounted for in that number. The Verge notes that this includes things like Amazon Fire devices and Chinese-based Androids that don’t touch Google products like the Play Store.
Google I/O is still underway, so make sure to check back as we’ll continue to cover the news and any product announcements from the company.
