Oreo reaches 0.3% of the Android market in latest distribution chart

Android logoAt this point, the slow growth in distribution numbers for the latest version of Android is nothing new - the fact is, it's always been like this. It's still pretty funny to see Oreo at a whopping 0.3% of the market at the moment, growing from 0.2% one month ago. When interpreting those numbers, remember that Google released Android 8.0 Oreo back in August - but even so, it was nowhere to be seen in the chart in September.

Anyway, this also goes to show how few Nexus, Pixel, and Sony devices are out in the wild, because up until now only (some of) those launched with or got updated to this iteration of the OS..

Oreo reaches 0.3% of the Android market in latest distribution chart

Nougat on the other hand keeps growing steadily, reaching 20.6% of the pie this time around, up from 17.8% in October. Marshmallow is losing some traction but remains the most used version of Android right now, with 30.9% of the market. With 27.2%, Lollipop is still close by. KitKat is the oldest one that still nets double digits at 13.8%, while all the others combined merely reach 7.2%.
