The YouTube Android app has more installed than anyone on earth
Wow, you really like watching videos on YouTube. Google’s Android Video Player app, which was previously available in the first version of Android Phone 1.0, has now been downloaded ten billion times from the Play Store. Much of this data must have come from before the Play Store.
Only one other app has affected this mark, and traditionally it’s barely an app. Google Play Services is a backbone of the way Google interacts with Android and user accounts. Apparently, YouTube is the first user-facing app to reach this milestone.
Of course, just because there are tens of billions of downloads doesn’t mean that there are tens of billions of users (more than the number of people on the planet right now) that help with app updates, new phone activity, and other multiplier events pad Download the number. But I think it’s safe to say that, by the beginning of this year, with over three billion active Android devices, YouTube is installed on most Android devices sold outside of China.
Just for shit and springs, Ryan Hager has launched his trusted, Dust HTCG One, the first commercial Android device, to see if there’s a 1.0 app installed. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
Who is betting on the next Android app to hit ten billion in the Play Store? Gmail is my guess.
