Google has unveiled the newest Android distribution information on its website of Android Developer. As per the table, the latest version of OS, 8.0 Oreo has not even crossed 1% of all the Android gadgets all over the world.
The distribution figures unveil that Android 8.0 Oreo has smacked 0.3% of all the active gadgets that run on Android. This is a sluggish expansion keeping in mind the particular version began launching out to all the consumers in late August all over the world this year. It is worth claiming that the OS edition is limited to Pixel and Nexus gadgets only. None of the main OEMs have begun launching out the version of the OS to their handsets. Even those operating near stock Android variants such as Motorola and Nokia handsets have not yet got Android 8.0 Oreo.
Android 7.1 and 7.0 Nougat has witnessed a fine rise in comparison to previous month. Early last month, Android 7.1 and 7.0 were on 2.0% and 15.8%, respectively. This month they are placed on 3% and 17.6%, respectively. Keeping in mind that Android operates on more than 2 Billion handsets, a growth by a handful of percent also indicates thousands of gadgets. We see an increment in distribution of Nougat mainly due to various handsets receiving the OS updates.
Even though Android Lollipop and Marshmallow have witnessed a fall, they are still above Android Oreo and Nougat when it comes to distribution percentage. Android Marshmallow v6.0 has 30.9% gadgets wrapped. This also makes the specific version of OS the most extensive in the segment of tablets. Android Lollipop v5.1 and v5.0 obtain 20.8% and 6.4% respectively. Android Jelly Bean v4.3, v4.2.x, and v4.1.x are on 0.9%, 3.1%, and 2.2%, respectively. KitKat is hanging on 13.8%, while Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread still survives in the distribution segment with 0.5% each.
Google by now has started trialing Android 8.1 in the preview mode for developer. It aims to make it openly available by subsequent month. As a result, in all likelihood we will view the specific version of OS in January 2018 in distribution table.
