Android runs hundreds of millions of mobile devices in over 190 countries across the world. It will have captured almost 75% of the worldwide market share by the end of 2020, and this development is growing by the day.
For the first time, a company called Open Handset Alliance created Android, which is based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open-source software.
Initially, Android was planned as a mobile operating system. With the development of code libraries and its developers from many domains, Android has expanded into a collection of software for all devices such as tablets, wearables, set-top boxes, smart TVs, laptops, and so on.
