Google: Android Users Have Now Installed Over 48B Apps, Up 2.5x From A Year Ago

At its sixth annual I/O developer conference in San Francisco, Google today announced that Android users have now installed over 48 billion apps. Just in the last two months, users installed 2.5 billion apps. Android’s senior vice president for Android product management made this announcement at the outset of the I/O keynote, in which Google also announced that it has now reached over 900 million Android activations, up from the 400 million it announced last year.

Just last September, Google announced that it had passed 25 billion app installs, so there is clearly a strong momentum here and Google is poised to overtake Apple’s 50 billion app installs in the next few months.
