Google Chrome for Android hits 1 Billion Downloads in the Play Store

5 July, 2015 Chrome

Android

 

Google Chrome is now the No.1 browser in the Play Store as the most popular web browser in the Android Platform. Chrome has just officially reached more than "1 BILLION" installs on the Play Store.

 

While induction into this elite group hasn't been quite as impressive since membership hit the double digits, Chrome is among the first of Google's apps that doesn't owe all of its success to pre-installs. The first beta release of Chrome came in early 2012 and only supported Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. At this time, ICS was still new and only a handful of devices were shipping with it. There were still brand new phones launching with Gingerbread.

It wasn't until several months later that Chrome would come pre-installed for the first time on the original Nexus 7 running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Most manufacturers continued to stick exclusively to their own "stock" browsers until 2013, when many of them started to include both two browsers.
