Google has earned $31 billion in revenue and a total of $22 billion (R363 billion) in profit since Android was launched.

According to a report by Bloomberg, Oracle lawyer Annette Hurst revealed the figures as part of a legal battle with the search engine giant.

The money is mostly made from Google ads shown on Android phones and from the Play Store’s revenue.
