Sundar Pichai revealed that Google has now paid out 5B$ to developers from its Google Play AppStore since the last Google IO. Which is 2.5X year over year growth.

In Contrast Apple has paid out 15B$ to developers from AppStore sales so far 

Apple’s incredible developers have now earned $15 billion on the App Store.
