Since it’s launch last year, Android nougat has struggled to gain market distribution just like any other Android version has over the past years. The Google Pixel had it from the start and several devices from the likes of HTC, Motorola, Sony and LG have had their nougat updates as well yet by the end of January, Nougat 7.0 and 7.1 combined were only present on a mere 1.2% of Android devices.

Google has released Android distribution numbers for January, revealing a not so significant bump in the number of Android devices running Nougat and the disappearance of Android 2.2 Froyo, falling below the 0.1 percent line that it managed to maintain for ages. Although still under one percent, Nougat almost doubled in usage. Increasing only a tenth of a percentage point from December, 7.0 Nougat is now at 0.5%. Meanwhile, 7.1 with API level 25 makes an entry at 0.2%. Continue reading “[Video] A timeline of Android version distribution upto 2017, also Froyo is finally dead”
After pretending October didn’t exist — no Android distribution numbers went out last month — Google has revealed Android Nougat’s debut distribution percentage. Unsurprisingly Nougat falls at just 0.3 percent, which makes sense since apart from the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, almost every existing Nexus device and some Moto G4s, everyone is still waiting for some nougat love. The only other really noteworthy change came from Marshmallow, which surged 5.3 points to 24% of total devices.

Google has just released the latest detailed statistics regarding the operating system’s version distribution, Android’s Platform Distribution chart, for the month of September and it’s no real surprise to see that Android 7.0 Nougat isn’t quite on the listing yet. These numbers represent data taken over the past month, so Nougat still isn’t represented on the charts. Android only counts versions equal to or exceeding .1 percent of the ecosystem. Android Marshmallow adoption has soared to 18.7%, up from 15.2% in August.
