By the numbers: Google boasts Android explosive growth

Not that this is exactly new to many of you but Android is big and it’s getting bigger by the moment. Google today announced that there are now 1 billion active (within last 30 days) Android users. And, with the upcoming Android One, Android TV, Android Wear, and Android Fit stuff we should expect that figure to shoot even higher.

  • 30-day active users grown to more than 1 billion
  • 20 billion texts every day
  • 93 million selfies every day
  • 1.5 trillion steps per day
  • 100 billion times per day to check our phones
  • Android tablets account for 64 percent of global market share – does not count Kindle and other branded experiences
  • App installs are up 236% year over year
