Today, during the company’s Q2 Earnings announcement, Larry Page took the stage to discuss Google’s epic growth- over $9 billion in revenues, up 32% year on year. In his first quarter as CEO, he discussed Google +, which is still in field trial but has experienced tremendous growth. Page announced that in just two weeks, over 10 million people have joined Google+ and over 1 billion items are being shared each day on the new social network.

Page is incredibly happy with the progress so far on Google+. But he’s also happy about the growth of Chrome and Android. Over 160 million users use Chrome, the world’s fastest growing browser and 550,000 Android phones are activated each day.

“We want to make services that people use twice a day, like a toothbrush,” finished Paige.
