Within the framework of the online conference on Google I / O developers, many curious novelties have already been presented, including Android 12, as well as future innovations for the Google photo. Within the framework of the presentation, Google’s vice president, Android and Play, Market Samir Samat, announced that currently around the world is used more than 3 billion devices with Android.
The last time the Google I / O conference was held in 2019, last year it was canceled due to a coronavirus pandemic. Compared to 2019, the number of active Android devices increased by 500 million units. About overcoming the mark of 2 billion Active Google devices announced in 2017.
It is worth noting that the announced statistics are based on the Play Market Platform data. This means that it does not take into account devices using third-party digital content stores, as well as many Android devices in China, where people prefer not to use Google services and applications. Probably, actually all over the world is used much more devices running Android than was announced during the Google presentation.
It is worth noting that at the beginning of the year, Apple announced that over the whole world is used more than 1 billion iPhone, which is only a third of the active Android devices. It can be said that Apple’s dominance in the field of smartphones and tablets is mainly limited to the US markets and some other regions. The rest of the world, the leader still remains Android.
