Android, the world's most popular mobile platform
Android powers millions of phones, tablets, and other devices and brings the power of Google and the web into your hands.
With an amazingly fast browser, cloud sync, multi-tasking, easy ways to connect & share and the latest Google apps (and thousands of other apps available on Android Market) your Android powered device is beyond smart.
Quick and easy browsing
The Android browser puts the web at your fingertips. View multiple open pages at once, use incognito mode to browse privately and sync your Google Chrome bookmarks so all your favorite sites are with you on-the-go. And save any web page to read when you’re offline—handy for mobile boarding passes, train schedules, and your favorite news articles. Fast, powerful and easy, just like on your computer.
Master your photos and connect with friends and family
Android makes it easy to shoot, edit and share photos and videos quickly. Capture those special moments in your life. With one-touch sharing, you can share immediately with family and friends, without switching apps or losing your original. You can even use your camera to video chat with Google Talk, or participate in a Google+ hangout.
All your email, anytime, anywhere
Gmail makes mobile email fast, fun, and approachable. You can swipe between conversations to catch and search for emails even when you don’t have a data connection. With seamless contacts integration and instant access to your latest mail, Gmail can play a crucial role in your online experience, no matter where you are or what device you're using.
Maps with turn-by-turn navigation, Places, and Latitude

Control your Android device with your voice

Beam from one phone to another
Using state-of-the-art facial recognition technology, you can now open some Android devices with a smile. Just grab your phone with one hand, turn it on, and look at it—and you're in. No complicated passwords to remember.
