Oreo still hasn't reached 1% market share, Google's monthly report reveals

Vlad, 08 January 2018

Since it's the beginning of a new month, you can be sure of two things: that a new Android security update is out for supported Nexus and Pixel devices, and that Google's updated its Android distribution chart. This shows us how much of the market each individual version of the OS takes up.

As usual, the latest iteration is growing, but at an excruciatingly slow pace. Oreo was at 0.5% a month ago, and now it's reached a whopping 0.7%. At this rate, many months will pass before it even arrives at 10%.

That's always been the way things are in the Android world, however. The most popular version is still Marshmallow, launched in 2015. It's lost some steam, though, falling to 28.6% from 29.7% in December. Nougat comes next with 26.3% (up 3% month-on-month), while Lollipop closes the podium with 25.1% of the pie. KitKat still commands 12.8% of the market, and Jelly Bean has 5.6%. Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread have finally been overtaken by Oreo, by the way.
