Almost exactly two years ago, the YouTube app crossed 5 billion downloads on the Play Store. Earlier this year, we also saw a much smaller 50 million milestone hit by the Android TV version of the YouTube app. Both apps have the advantage of coming pre-installed on most suitable devices, which means these accomplishments are owed partially to the success of the OS.

Galaxy S20 FE owners get an early treat as One UI 3.0 global rollout begins

An early version of Samsung’s Android 11 release roadmap weirdly missed the Galaxy S20 FE, but the company was quick enough to announce that the budget flagship wouldn't be too far behind the main S20 line.
