Google doesn’t officially disclose the number of units sold and in the case of the Pixel smartphones that’s particularly irksome.
However the company’s Play Store gives us a pretty accurate estimate of how many Pixel and Pixel XL phones Google has sold.
See Google’s Play Store gives a range number for app installs and in the case of the Pixel Launcher app that number just passed from the threshold from the 500,000 – 1,000,000 to 1,000,000-5,000,000 meaning that Google has sold around 1 million Pixel smartphones since their launch some 8 months ago.
The Pixel Launcher is exclusive to the Pixel phones (it excludes even the Pixel C tablet) so the number should perfectly match the number of activated units out htere.
So there you go – Google has likely sold around 1 million of its first in-house smartphone duo. Not bad for a first attempt although not nearly enough to challenge the big boys.
Maybe interest will pick up once the Pixel 2 rolls around.
