Building for billions
Announcing developers.google.com/billions.

Over half the world’s smartphone users access the Internet over a 2G connection. Even more may want to access content while entirely offline — whether between stations on the subway in Tokyo or to cope with a flakey connection in a rural part of Rajasthan.

To reach billions of users, developers must address core challenges: limited or intermittent connectivity, device compatibility, and high data costs. Today we’re unveiling developers.google.com/billions and related Android and Web resources to help developers deliver exceptional performance across a range of connections, data plans, and devices.

We’ll also be talking about this on stage every day at I/O - join us online or in-person:

Last week, I/O -- Google’s Developer Conference -- illustrated many of the same goals we see nonprofits champion every day. The mission to create a world that is more diverse and inclusive for underrepresented groups.
Sundar’s keynote address had real-time captioning. And the number of female attendees rose 15% from three years ago, with attendees from NGOs such as Women Who Code and the Anita Borg Institute present.
