In addition to the fact that there are over two billion monthly active Android devices in the world right now, Google has even more of a reason to brag.
According to Dave Burke, vice president of Android engineering at Google, over 82 billion Android apps have been installed from the Google Play Store to date.
“[That’s] 11 for every person on the planet,” said Burke, at Google’s 2017 I/O developer conference.
Google’s 82 billion figure might be impressive, but in 2016, Apple reported that over 140 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store.
Still, Google’s app download number — as well as their device count — shows that Android is definitely no longer a fledgling product.
