By far the biggest mobile operating system in the world

Onstage at Google’s I/O developer conference today, CEO Sundar Pichai announced that the company’s Android operating system recently crossed a major milestone. It now has more than 2 billion monthly active devices.

Android isn’t the only massive property Google has under its umbrella. The company now has seven services which have reached 1 billion users: Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome, Gmail, Search, and Google Play. People downloaded 82 billion apps during 2016 and also tune into YouTube to watch over 1 billion hours of video each day.

Pichai also noted that Google Drive now has 800 million users, and Google Photos has crossed the 500 million monthly user mark. And Google Assistant is now available on over 100 million devices and across over 70 different devices.

A year and a half ago, Apple announced that there were over 1 billion iOS devices in active use. It hasn’t updated that milestone yet.
