Nearly six weeks after debuting on the distribution numbers, Google's latest operating system only rose a tenth of a percentage point.
The Android Oreo 8.0 stands lowest on the table, even below the 2nd Gen Android Gingerbread which is now running in 0.5 percent of devices next to the Ice Cream Sandwich (0.5 percent). Presumably these are the ones responsible for keeping Gingerbread, released in May 2010, and Ice Cream Sandwich from October 2011 still on Google's Android version distribution chart.
What's coming in Android 8.0 Oreo?
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. However, Huawei and HTC have recently announced to launch their device devices with the Oreo operating system.
Crude Oil Steady As OPEC Sees Strong Demand
OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo listens during a news conference in Vienna, Austria, November 7, 2017. The American Petroleum Institute (API) reports weekly crude and refined product inventories later on Tuesday.
As he notes, one obvious reason for the existence of more devices running older versions of Android is that some active devices are now a decade old. To recall, Nougat's share was around 17.8 per cent last month.
Additionally, back in 2014 Google had only just passed one billion active monthly users, which rose to 1.4 billion by mid-2015, and as of May 2017 stood at two billion.
Total devices on Android Jelly Bean now amount to a total of 6.2 per cent.
Android Lollipop has a total of 27.2 percentage points, which includes 6.4 per cent devices on Android 5.0, while 20.8 per cent devices are on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
