Google I/O: Day One by the numbers


Google I/O got off to an eventful start thanks to keynote delays, the pre-release of news on Google’s websites before it was announced on stage and an epic skydiving stunt. Here is a quick run-down of day one by the numbers:

  • 400 million active Android devices worldwide. Around this time last year, there were 100 million active Android devices.
  • Google is activating 1 million Android devices daily.
  • A million NFC-enabled devices are being activated every week.
  • South Korea and Japan saw 200 percent year over year growth in activations of Android devices.
  • India, Thailand and Brazil saw 400 percent increase in activations on a year-over-year basis.
  • There are 600,000 Android apps.
  • There have been 20 billion app installs to date.
  • Two-third of Play revenue comes from outside of the US.
  • Google has more than 4 million books in the Play store.
  • YouTube has 800 million monthly users.
  • There are 350 million mobile devices with YouTube installed on them.
  • Twitter users share 700 YouTube videos every minute.

And now for the Google+ numbers.

  • 250 million accounts.
  • 150 million monthly active Google+ users.
  • 75 million daily active users.
  • Apparently daily actives spend more than 12 minutes per day.

Here’s our recap of Day One as it unfolded.



Im not doubting the numbers here but 12+ minutes on Google Plus (a Social Network) isnt something to boast of,its just that users will be seeing one or two of there friends updates and leaving the site.


People dont have time for + or fb…… lets face it. The craze is about over.
