If you’ve always wondered how many Android devices are running around the world at any given time, well Google CEO Sundar Pichai has you covered. According to Pichai, there are no less than 3 billion monthly active Android users around the world – take that iOS and Windows!
Android phone users cross 3 billion mark
While Sundar Pichai didn’t reveal the break-up of the 3 billion Android users around the world, he did mention one important statistic: Google added the last 1 billion Android users in just 2021 alone. Mind-boggling, right?
According to an IANS release, Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai mentioned that consumers around the world had activated one billion Android phones in just 2021.
“I am proud that Android remains the world’s most popular operating system with more than three billion monthly active devices worldwide. Last year alone, consumers activated one billion Android phones,” Sundar Pichai said during the company’s earnings call on Tuesday.
Just earlier this month, Google revealed its Pixel 6A smartphone, alongside its Pixel Buds Pro true-wireless headphones, both of which found mention in Sundar Pichai’s call highlights to investors around the world. “It is great to see the positive feedback so far,” Pichai was quoted as saying by agency reports about both the marquee Google hardware products.
