He said Android users take 1.4 trillion steps a day and check their phones 100 billion times a day. More interesting, however, is the number of active Android users. Pichai said that there are now more than 1 billion 30-day active users, which means users who have used Android in the past month.¬†Additionally, Pichai said Android’s tablet market share is now at 62 percent, up from 46 percent last year.
