Google tells how Android sound latency has improved

Over the past four years, Google has taken a number of steps to improve the sound latency of Android. These measures, together with an increased focus on sound latency from manufacturers, have led to significant improvements in the ecosystem.

In January 2017, the sound latency averaged 109ms (round-trip) for the 20 most popular Android mobiles. By January this year, the latency had dropped to 39ms. The difference between the highest and lowest latency in telephones was also significantly higher four years ago. In other words, the user experience is more consistent today.

According to Google, the improvements make Android today better suited for audio apps that work in real time. At the same time, Google says they have a lot of work to do. A latency of 20ms or less is required for professional audio apps in Android and an average of 10ms is Google’s long-term goal.
