Google Go Crosses the 100 Million Installs Mark on the Play Store

Google Go

Even though not many people have seen or used Goole Go, it is a well-known application for those who use Android Go devices. Google Go is a trimmed down version of the Google app that you get pre-installed on any Android phone. Google Go is pre-installed on Android Go devices, all of which are made for the low-end market segment.

If you peep at the Google Go download numbers on the Google Play Store, you will notice that it has crossed the 100 million downloads mark. This is significant and shows the progress of Android Go as this app comes pre-installed in these devices. Google is yet to reveal how many Android Go devices are on the market but the Google Go numbers may just be an indication.

Any Android user is free to install Google Go on his/her phone. It is a smaller app and does not use up a lot of data or resources so may be a favourite among low end smartphone users. This is why the 100 million downloads number does not necessarily mean that there are 100 million Android Go devices out there.

Reaching 100 million downloads is no joke as the app had been downloaded just over 10 million times in September last year. Gaining 90 million downloads in less than a year is impressive and I can’t wait to see the download numbers by the end of the year.
