Google is boasting that its apps marketplace Google Play Store, formerly Android Market, has passed the 25 billion mark for downloads.
The search giant revealed the information in a post on its official blog, where it said that the Android apps store reached 25 billion downloads and now houses more than 675,000 apps and games.
Earlier this month, Apple disclosed that its iTunes App Store is home to more than 700,000 apps.
The fruit-themed company also announced in June that it passed an industry milestone of 30 billion app downloads.
To celebrate, Google will offer Android apps with large discounts for the next five days.
“Every day you’ll be able to choose from a collection of apps from some of the world’s top developers including Gameloft, Electronic Arts, Rovio, runtastic, Full Fat and more. And all for just 25 cents,” it said.
“We’ll also be offering some special collections like 25 movies you must own, 25 banned books, 25 albums that changed the world and our 25 top selling magazines, all at special prices.”
At this pace, Google could catch up with Apple sooner than we expected.
