This statistic shows the number of cumulative app downloads from the Google Play app store for Android devices between August 2010 to May 2016. During that month, the online company announced that a total of 65 billion apps had been downloaded from the Google Play Store, up from 50 billion apps in July 2013. The Google Play app download volume has been on par with the Apple App Store.
Google Play serves as the official app store for the Android operating system which is published through Google. It serves as a digital media store, where Android users can download music, magazines, books, movies and television programs. Presently, the number of apps available at Google Play has exceeded those of the Apple App Store. This is impressive since the Apple App Store has a longer history and Google Play is the newer platform.

Currently, and in the future, the number of app downloads from Google Play are expected to far outpace the number of downloads made from the Apple App Store. However, it will take Google Play a bit longer to catch up with the Apple Store with regards to revenue generation. In the third quarter of 2016, combined Apple App Store and Google Play app revenues in the United States amounted to 2.23 billion U.S. dollars.
