Google’s Android TV and Google TV devices experienced strong growth in 2022, with over 110 million monthly active devices.
In May 2021, the number was 80 million, so it’s reasonable to assume that most of the recent growth can be attributed to the Chromecast with Google TV. That said, TCL said this past week that it sold 10 million Android TV/Google TV-based smart TVs last year too.
Google confirmed the new usage figure to 9to5Google, which mentioned an official statement but did not publish it.
As you may recall, Amazon announced this past week that it has sold over 150 million Fire TV devices to date. It’s hard to compare that figure, which represents total units sold, to Google’s monthly active devices figure.
And Roku announced that Roku Operating System (Roku OS)-based smart TVs were the best-selling smart TVs sold in the U.S. in 2021 for the second year in a row. That figure, too, is impossible to compare to the Amazon and Google figures.
