Sundar Pichai – CEO, Google

Good morning. Good to see all of you. It’s been a crazy few days. I’ve been spending time receiving the Indian Prime Minister after great excitement in the valley, celebrating the moon festival with family and friends. I was trying to catch the blood moon a couple of nights ago. All I saw was the regular white moon. But thanks to YouTube, I think I saw the real deal. Hopefully you all had better luck.

Being here this morning to talk about products, especially around computing, which is near and dear to my heart. Computing is the foundation of a lot of things we do. It’s how users interface with technology, and for us, the way we do it is by investing in large open ecosystems, platforms which we build with everyone, and that helps us do this at scale. And the scale at which everything is working is pretty breathtaking to see.

Just over a year ago, at Google I/O, we announced Android had 1 billion 30-day active devices across the world. Fast forward to today we now have 1.4 billion 30-day active devices which we see in Android around the world. So we’ve added 400 million active devices, and the momentum is happening around the world, especially in emerging economies. In many, many places, in countries like Indonesia and Vietnam, Android has literally doubled in the last year. And what’s exciting about this is in most of these cases, these are people who are adopting a smartphone for the first time. So we are well on our way to bringing the next billion users on line. We care about making sure there is entry-level high-quality affordable smartphones for these users as well., which is why we do Android One. We’ve expanded the program to many countries. We recently launched it in Turkey about a month ago and General Mobile’s Android One phone has been the best-selling phone in Turkey since then.
