Introduction of Android

What is Android?

Android is an open source and Linux-based Operating System for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Android was developed by the Open Handset Alliance, led by Google, and other companies. Android offers a unified approach to application development for mobile devices which means developers need only develop for Android, and their applications should be able to run on different devices powered by Android. 

               As of August 2018, over 3.3 million Android apps or applications are available in Google Play Store. Android applications are developed using Android software development kit (SDK) and Java. Go and Kotlin are also used for development.
