Android distribution numbers for December show Nougat at 0.4% of the market

Android logoGoogle has updated the Android platform distribution chart, as it does every month. So we now know how much market share each version of the company's mobile operating system had over the past week.

Let's start with 7.0 Nougat, the latest iteration of Android before today. It's now at 0.4%, a 0.1% jump compared to where it was in November's chart. Today Google has outed Android 7.1.1 Nougat for Pixel and Nexus devices, so we'll probably see that release in January's chart. At the moment there's still only one version of Android that has less devices running it than Nougat, and that's Froyo, which is more than six years old.

Android distribution numbers for December show Nougat at 0.4% of the market

Marshmallow is now at 26.3% of the pie, up from 24% a month ago. Lollipop has 34% market share, down 0.1%. KitKat has dropped to 24% (from 25.2%), while Jelly Bean now makes up 12.8% of the market, down from 13.7%. Ice Cream Sandwich went from 1.3% to 1.2%, as did Gingerbread.

Hopefully we'll see more Nougat updates from various Android device makers soon, helping that version take up more and more of the pie.
