Google always shares a handful of interesting facts and data points about Android during its events, and today is no different. According to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, there are now 1.4 billion active Android devices.
To get this number, Google records Android phone use over a 30 day period. They did the same for Google Play, and announced that Google’s media market has 1 billion active users. These numbers have been attributed in large part to the rise of Android One, where the program has led to double the usage of Android in both India and Vietnam.
Google has been talking about capturing the next billion smartphone users for some time now, it looks like it’s well on its way.
