How much money Google makes from Android

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.
