Android operating system was created by Google to be used largely on touchscreen devices, cell phones, and tablets. Its design allows users to interact with mobile devices intuitively, using finger gestures that mimic typical actions like pinching, swiping, and tapping. Google's Android software can also be found in televisions, vehicles, and wristwatches, each with its own user interface.
Google created the Android operating system for use in all of its touchscreen devices, tablets, and mobile phones.
