Guess how much Google has made from Android OS till date

After secretly guarding Android OS financial details for a long while, a lawyer representing Oracle has brought to light some of the well hidden details of Google’s finances. In a case between Oracle and Google, a lawyer representing the former told the court the following:

  • Google has generated £22 billion ($31 billion) in revenue and £15 billion ($22 billion) in profit since the OS first launched in 2008.
  • Google paid Apple £700 million ($1 billion) in 2014 to be the default search engine on the iPhone and iPads. Apple has been receiving this payment yearly since 2012

In response to this, Google lawyers replied:

“That non-public financial data is highly sensitive, and public disclosure could have significant negative effects on Google’s business.”

From these revelations, it’s clear that Google doesn’t really make money from Android compared to what Apple makes from iOS.

  1. “from these revelations, it’s clear that Google doesn’t really make money from Android compared to what Apple makes from iOS”

    Apple doesn’t make money from iOS, at least not in the way Google makes money from Android. I’m pretty sure Google will be suing Oracle for this breach of privacy as the release of this information will affect their bargaining position (with Mozilla). also think Oracle’s lawsuit is very silly but that’s another discussion entirety

  2. Apparently Apple made that much money in 3 months – $32.2 billion to be precise. Different streams to Google however, and iAd is just a sideline.

    1. yes, but not from iOS. these aren’t Google’s earnings or profits, but figures for Android. iAd is dead, Apple is ceding control (and profits) to publishers
