Android Nougat Now Running on 26.3 Percent of Active Devices: Google


The official rollout of Android 8.1 Oreo hasn't been the smoothest one for Google.

The Google Pixel line of devices launched in 2017 and has replaced the Nexus line in receiving Android version upgrades first.

Chances are your phone may never get to taste Oreo, unless it is a Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ or Note 8 or a OnePlus 5/5T with a promised Oreo update, or a Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One device, which has already started getting the update.

Google has yet again shared an update on its Android distribution stats.


Wondering which versions of Android are being used the most as we head into 2018? However, a new version of the Google Camera APK has popped up on XDA-Developers' forums which can be installed on devices running Android 7 and up and be used to take Portrait photographs. This distribution chart shows where its mobile platform stands and it looks like the numbers for Android Oreo and Android Nougat are growing steadily. The latest iteration now commands a 0.7 percent share of the Android pie, up from 0.5 percent last month. Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1 grew from last month as well, finishing at 26.3 per cent usage in January.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still the most widely adopted version of the OS, even though this variant of Google's operating system was released back in 2015. The dip in Marshmallow's market share indicates people are either updating their phones to Nougat or upgrading to newer phones. Meanwhile, Android Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich are still kicking in under 1 per cent of total active devices.

Android Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) is still claiming a significant piece of this pie, despite having slipped to 25.1 percent usage.
