Jan 09 2018 by Michele Stevens
Comparing it to December's distribution chart shows that Android 8.0 Oreo numbers are still the same comprising 0.5 percent of the overall market share. Well, like every month, Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers for this month as well. Meanwhile, Android Nougat is now the second most used version after Android Marshmallow. Google collected the data on the distribution numbers over a seven-day period ending Monday. Android Nougat has seen a growth of 3% whereas Android Oreo has seen a nominal growth of 0.2%, and, their total share in the Android distribution chart is now 26.3% and 0.7% respectively.
We closed 2017 looking at Android usage numbers showing that more and more people are jumping over to Android Nougat. It is also surprising to see that the share for Android Gingerbread at 0.4 percent of the market, considering the fact that it was launched 7 years ago.

Jerusalem's status has always been one of the main obstacles to a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. Before Trump's announcement, Abbas was scheduled to meet with Pence in the biblical town of Bethlehem.
Android Nougat, which is nearly 13 months old now, grew to 26.3 percent, up from 23.3 percent last month. Android 7.0 saw a 1.8 percent increase while Android 7.1 rose by 1.2 points in the last month. Even though it is no longer the latest version of Google's operating system, there are new handsets that are still shipping with Android Nougat pre-installed, which may further contribute to the increase in its market share. Lollipop saw a dip, dropping from 26.3 percent market share to 25.1 percent.
That said, other Android OS like Jelly Bean, KitKat and Lollipop too have seen dropped shares in the distribution chart. So it's no surprise developers got a hold of the tech behind the feature and brought it over to more devices running Android 8.0 Oreo and up. To note, the figures are gathered from devices visiting the Google Play app, which only supports Android 2.2 and above.
