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.

  • YouTube has 800 million monthly users.
  • There are 350 million mobile devices with YouTube installed on them.
