Android is the most widely used operating system in the world and it continues to cross new milestones. Google confirmed during its I/O 2019 developers conference today that there are now more than 2.5 billion active Android devices being used across the globe. The figure was revealed by Stephanie Cuthbertson, an Android director at Google.
The company pointed out that these 2.5 billion active devices were manufactured by 180 different hardware companies. They’re obviously not all smartphones as you’ll even find seatback entertainment screens in airplanes running on Android.

Before jumping into the few steps that this process entails, let us clarify what hiding your active status actually means.
A seismologist at Hokkaido University says Thursday's magnitude 6.7 earthquake occurred in an area known to accumulate stress underground.
Associate Professor Kei Katsumata said an active fault is located near the epicenter, but he says he cannot say for sure if there is a direct link between the fault and the latest earthquake. He pointed out that its epicenter was 40 kilometers underground but the fault is about 10 kilometers deep.

Companies such as Sony and Microsoft have their own online gaming networks in which PlayStation and Xbox gamers can play multiplayer games (not together). In Sony's case, it is the PlayStation Network (PSN) which seems to be growing because according to Sony's latest figures (via VG247), PSN has hit 70 million monthly active users.
This is actually rather impressive especially when you think about the fact that this means at least 70 million players from all around the world are logged into Sony's PSN and are playing games and chatting with each other on a monthly basis. To give you guys some context, Sony's PSN is now boasting a higher monthly active user count compared to Microsoft's Xbox Live.
