The Google applications are one of the most used applications on all smartphones. Some of these applications are pre-installed on Android devices as part of the GMS (Google Mobile Services) software package. As a result, Google Photos has been downloaded 5 billion times in the Play Store. Similarly, Google Keep has been downloaded 1 billion times.
Google Photos is arguably the best cloud-based gallery service on the market. Unfortunately, from June 2021, it will no longer be free. But this will not be bad, because no service is as good as it is now.
In other words, although the Google Photos Android application has been downloaded 5 billion times, its user base is much smaller. This is because according to reports, the service had only more than 1 billion active users in July 2019.
The only reason the app reached this milestone is that it is pre-installed on most Android smartphones and tablets.
But since not everyone uses it, the number of active users is much smaller compared to downloads.
On the other hand, Google Keep is one of the best free note-taking apps. Unlike the previous app, this app is not pre-installed on any Android. Therefore, the download of the app on the Play Store reached 1 billion, which is a major achievement.
Google Keep doubled its downloads from 500 million in 18 months. This clearly shows that as people continue to receive education and work at home, the epidemic has played a key role in their success.
