Google's Android distribution numbers for November confirm a minimal increase for Oreo


It has been over six weeks since the Google's Android version 8.0 Oreo was announced, but still, it seems that the adoption of the latest Android version is yet a distinct dream.

According to the latest chart, Android Oreo, the latest operating system that Google released back in August, is running only on 0.3 percent devices. While Oreo is advancing at a snail's pace, it should begin picking up speed as more people get their hands on the newest flagship devices such as the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 Xl, and Mate 10 Pro, among others that launched running Android 8 Oreo.

If you haven't yet been able to tell, we're pretty sarcastic when writing our headlines for Android Distribution updates. Android 7.0 rose by 1.8 percent to 17.6 percent, while Android 7.1 increased to 3 percent.

In terms of features, Android Oreo is equipped with a customizable system for managing notifications, which can be grouped by type of application to facilitate access.

Android Nougat, that had a share of 17.8% last month, now has a share of 20.6%. The almost two-and-half year old Android 6.0 Marshmallow continues to dominate with 30.9 per cent of Android devices, though it is down from 32 per cent in October. The chart for the month of November, published earlier today, paints a not so encouraging picture for Android.

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.

Total devices on Android Jelly Bean now amount to a total of 6.2 per cent. Meanwhile, Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread both declined to.5%.
