Three Months of Android Oreo and Two-Year-Old Marshmallow Still Rules


Last month, we saw Android Oreo make its first appearance on the Android Distribution stats with a 0.2% mark that may seem small but considering over 2 billion smartphones run on Android, this is quite a significant number. Well, it’s a new month and Google has released the distribution stats for the month of November.

Android Oreo and Nougat had a growth curve as all other versions of Android declined in market share. Oreo now runs on 0.3% of all Android smartphones, Nougat, on the other hand, saw quite the growth, running on 20.6% of all Android smartphones.

Android Marshmallow that was launched two years ago is still the most popular version of Android with 30.9% market share in the Android world, it is followed closely by much older Android Lollipop at 27.2%. Interestingly, ancient KitKat, Jellybean and Gingerbread all have higher market share than Android Oreo.

Below you can find Android distribution numbers for November 2017:
