Belle II at the electron-positron collider SuperKEKB is the successor to the Belle experiment. Its design luminosity is 8*10^35/(cm^2 s), 40 times the record achieved at KEKB/Belle, at the same center of mass energy in the bottomonium region. Over the next years it is expected to accumulate an integrated luminosity of 50/ab, collecting by far the largest sample of B mesons at electron-positron colliders, together with large datasets of bottomonium and lighter particles. After a commissioning run in 2018 the detector started routine data taking in March 2019. In this talk the current status of the detector, current and future running conditions and further prospects for the future will be discussed.
