Android Development VS Web Design/Programming

Hi guys, I've been taking the Android development course and loving it. I am currently unemployed and looking to start a career in programming (either something with apps or websites). I was wondering what everyone's opinion would be easier to find a job in (not necessarily to learn the skills) with little to no experience: Android development or something with websites? I also unfortunately do not have any sort of degree in anything at all.

If it's something with websites, which course should I take? Web DESIGN, PHP, or Front End Web Development? All seem appealing to me. There's nothing wrong with the Android course: I just want to try and make a good decision before I get too deep into it.

Frond End Development includes whatever the client (pc) will do to provide the web page such as the looking of the webpage (html/css/javascript) , the communication with an api (javascript) etc.Frond End is for the Presentation layer and it is an interface between the user and the back end. Back End Development includes the server side such as databases and whatever you will build so your web site will communicate with the server.For example a todolist where the user will save to a database the tasks. Do whatever you like the most and you are good at.
