Google announced that Android has crossed around 3 billion devices that are actively being used currently around the world.

The Google I/O 2021 conference is held, however, it is being held virtually this year owing to the COVID 19 epidemic. One of the outcomes of the present event is the news that the number of active Android smartphones has surpassed 3 billion. 

During the virtual event, Sameer Samat, Google’s Vice President of Product Management, announced the achievement. The figures were collected from Google Play Store records, which implies they might be considerably higher than the current forecasts, given the millions of Android devices that do not come with Google Play Store preinstalled.

Huawei cellphones, Amazon Fire devices, etc. These smartphones potentially make up a sizable percentage of all running devices. 

Since the 2019 Google I/O Developers Conference, 500 million new Android users have been added. However, since 2017, when the estimated number of active users surpassed 2 billion, 1 billion new users have been added.
