Google's Android distribution numbers for November confirm a minimal increase for Oreo

Android distribution numbers for November show almost no change for Oreo

Android 8.1 Oreo will free up space by shrinking apps you don't use

This chart is an indication of what version of Android is running on how many devices in the market in terms of percentage.

At the moment, Android Marshmallow stands at 30.9 percent, making it the most used version of Android. For years, we've been writing about Google's failure to roll out the latest versions of its operating system to vendors in a timely fashion, but despite promises to the contrary, Google has failed to make any significant progress to date.

Android smartphone maker Essential promised that it would be releasing an update to Android 8.0 Oreo for its devices soon, and now there's a beta version of the update available through its developer portal. As we speak, Google's own older Nexus phones, the newer Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 2, last year's Pixel XL and Pixel, as well as Sony's Xperia XZ1 are just some of the phones that run Android Oreo.

As Android Authority noted this week, adoption of the latest version of Android has been slowing with each new version for the past few releases.




To be precise, the stats are based on active devices interacting with Google Play over the period of a week.

At this point, it's hard to know what Google can do about Android fragmentation, short of convincing everyone to buy Pixel or Android One devices. As last generation flagships start receiving Oreo updates, Nougat's momentum should peter out somewhat in the next couple of months. Both the devices are expected to get the new OS update in the first quarter of 2018 (January-March).

The notable aspect of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party feature, which helps the device to recover from constant boot loops. Meanwhile, vendors are still launching new devices with pre-Oreo Android.
