The Android TV platform is witnessing slow but steady growth, as Google has shared some new statistics about its platform.
The Android TV platform is a special version of the Android operating system designed for digital media players, speakers and TVs.
The Android TV platform has been around for several years, but it is still negligible compared to major competitors, such as (Roku) and (Amazon Fire TV).
In addition to some new changes in the platform, Google revealed that (Android TV) has grown to include more than 80 percent of users than it was at this time last year.
Obviously, this doesn’t give us a tangible number of people using (Android TV), but it does represent a vision for the platform’s growth.
It is also worth noting that the (Android TV) application gives some insights about the number of people who have at least tried the Google platform.
The (Google Play) store list is bypassed. To apply YouTube on the Android TV platform recently has barred 50,000,000 installs.
This means that since the Android TV platform first appeared in 2014, at least 50,000,000 individual users or devices have installed the YouTube app.
Moreover, Google also revealed that its Android TV app store continues to grow.
The company confirmed during its annual developer conference last year (Google I / O 2019) the availability of more than 5,000 applications, and this number has since jumped to 7,000 in total, with some important additions, such as (HBO Max).
With users demanding more TV shows, movies and apps than ever before, the big screen has become very important.
The percentage of active Android TV devices increased by more than 80 percent per month compared to last year, and working with 7 of the top 10 smart TV manufacturers and more than 160 TV operators helped give users more options with Android TV.
Google also confirmed that it now has 160 TV operator partners around the world, up from 130 in the last report, and pay TV subscriptions have been a major source of growth for the Android TV platform.
