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

14 November 2017

However, this time, Google has been a bit late in sharing these details.

Google's Project Treble promises to help speed up vendor releases of new Android versions, but the benefits of this technology will probably take several years, since only devices that ship with Android Oreo can take advantage of it.

Notably, Oreo is now running on a limited number of devices as the list includes Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus devices as well as a few more from other manufacturers and OEMs.

Ahead in the report, Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop, now supports 6.4 and 20.8 percent devices respectively, which makes it the second most used operating system after Marshmallow.

Meanwhile, Android 7.0 rose 1.8 percentage points to 17.6%, while 7.1 saw a one point increased to 3%. Both combine for a total of 20.6 percent compared to last month's 17.8 percent. The almost two-and-half year old Android 6.0 Marshmallow continues to dominate with 30.9 per cent of Android devices, though it is down from 32 per cent in October. Lollipop maintains its second spot with 27.2 percentage while KitKat still accounts for about 13.8 percent of the market.

Google officially launched Android 8.0 Oreo OS to its Pixel and Nexus series phones in August, and since then only one company-Sony-has released the new software to Xperia XZ Premium and now, HTC is expected to roll-out the update to its flagship phone soon. Further, KitKat is now running on 13.8 percent Android smartphones and Jelly Bean in 6.2 percent devices.
