Sundar Pichai is on stage at Google I/O 2017, kicking the show off with some fun statistics. First and foremost, we are all a part of the now over two billion active daily users of Android devices.
The number one billion was thrown around as well, let’s explore.
Google I/O is taking place at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. As always, fun stats kick off the show, as I say, one billion crossed the screens first. Google Maps, Gmail, Play Store, Search, Chrome and more have cracked the threshold.
YouTube was lumped in there as well, but we’re not talking about one billion active daily users, we’re talking one billion hours of consumption each day!
Google Drive is up to eight hundred million active daily users, not bad.
Google Photos is now up to five hundred million active users, but that may change soon. With the new Google Lens smart filters and features, the value of the service for preserving and isolating your memories may entice more users as we go. That said, we’re already looking at over 1.2 billion photos and videos uploaded every day.
Finally, two billion active daily Android devices. That’s right you and I help account for over 2,000,000,000 Android devices that power on every day. If you like the large numbers, the Google Play Store scans over fifty billion apps on devices every day to ensure your security.
The recent Android distribution numbers revealed that only about seven percent of those devices are running Android 7.0 Nougat. We’re anticipating some info on Android O at this keynote presentation, we at least know that the latest beta released this morning. Let the move to another version of the OS begin today.
Stay tuned for more fun and facts from the Google I/O conference over the next couple days. We’ve got people on the ground and will be bringing you the best stuff we can find.
