Android in Simple Terms
Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google for touchscreen mobile devices. Based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open-source software, variants of the Android OS are also used on game consoles, digital cameras, and other electronic devices.
Android became publicly available in 2007 after Google purchased Android Inc. in 2005. The Android platform is also associated Google Mobile Services (GMS), with a suite of proprietary software that comes pre-installed on most Android devices – such as Gmail, Google Chrome, and Google Play Services. Android has been the world’s best selling smartphone operating system since 2011, and the Google Play store features over 2+ million apps built on both Kotlin and Java.
