Google’s Sundar Pichai gave us some stats around Android at this year’s Google I/O developer event today, revealing that the mobile OS saw over one billion individual active users over the last 30 days. Here’s a chart:
This new stat replaces the previous device activations numbers, which we tracked over the past few years to a last-reported high of 900 million device activations back in 2013.
And there’s more amazing growth news too, with Pichai revealing that Google now has a tablet market share of 62 percent.
And THAT’S NOT IT. To further grow this, Pichai introduced the Android One initiative, to launch a cheaper, sub-$100 stock Android experience to bring more affordable smartphones to developing countries.
