The newest Android distribution figures are out on the Developer site of Google. As per these, Android Oreo is expanding but not at a speed Google is expected to have wished it to. Other versions of OS too have recovered their piece by a handful of points. The search behemoth has not yet unveiled the figures for Android 8.1 Oreo in the list. We might anticipate it to come in Android distribution table of January 2018.
As per the chart, Android 8.0 Oreo is operating on less than 1% of all the handsets running on Android OS. The version of OS takes up just 0.5% of the entire share, which is a small increment from 0.3% in comparison to previous month. This is comprehensible given that it has crossed only in a couple of handsets comprising Nexus and Pixel branded goods. Most of the OEMs are still trialing Android Oreo for their handsets.
Android Nougat 7.1 and 7.0 are at 4% and 19.3%, respectively, jointly grabbing 23.3% of the complete share. This has also jumped from 20.6% share of the last month. Android 6.0 Marshmallow has smacked 29.7% of share, which is a fall from last month’s 30.9%. Similar to the Marshmallow variant, Android Lollipop has also witnessed a minute fall from 27.2% of November 2017 to 26.3% of this month. It is expected to fall down in upcoming time as Nougat and Oreo take up additional share eventually.
In the same way, Android 4.4 KitKat dropped to 13.4% from 13.8% this month, whereas Android Jelly Bean has arrived to 5.9% from 6.2%. Fascinatingly, Android Ice Cream Sandwich remains unbroken at 0.5%, whereas Android Gingerbread ha slid down to 0.5% by 0.1%. It is significant to include that Google has previously began launching out Android 8.1 Oreo to Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2 handsets.
