Google’s global Android growth continues to thrive with one billion new consumer-enabled devices in the past year / Digital Information World
Android has been doing wonders for a while now and it’s safe to say that the winning streak doesn’t plan to show any signs of slowing down.
Google recently shed some light on how it was forced to activate almost a billion new devices in 2022 and it’s a very clear indication that the potential for growth is immense.
All over the world we see Android doing a good job and it is now in the lead as the most widely used operating system for smartphones. And considering how integral the latter is to our lives, you can only imagine what that means in terms of success.
Android is hailed for powering all devices, whether it’s the most modern and innovative, the most basic or the simplest, you name it and Android will be there. Therefore, this type of flexibility must be recognized for its great success.
Google’s I/O summit for this year highlighted the big growth spurt associated with it and how it was continuing at a more than acceptable pace.
Another point worth mentioning is how the company’s Sameer Samat boldly stated that there are 8 billion people living on planet earth and if we see how Google’s Android has enabled great growth with one billion activated devices is certainly a huge achievement. Obviously, these numbers are an indication of the potential he possesses not only now but for the future.
It also says a lot in terms of scale and engagement. Remember that Android phones can be found on small and large scale price tags. Moreover, for the common man, the choice to buy cheap and expensive smartphones is always there.
On the other hand, Google has also released some additional figures regarding its RCS. The tech giant has mentioned so many times before how it sees this as the future of texting. To be more precise, we are talking about figures that have crossed the thresholds of 500 million monthly active users.
The company says it is growing at a rapid pace. Likewise, they made sure they didn’t forget the chance to throw shade at Apple, sending a reminder to major operating systems to switch to RCS soon.
Finally, the figures for Android tablets are not declining. In fact, they are doing very well with over 270 million devices sold. Yes, it’s not as much as Android smartphone sales, but with more effort from Google, it just might take off in the right direction.
