Android Distribution Update For January 2018 Shows Oreo Growth At Unimpressive Rate

 

New month, new Android Distribution numbers. Each month, Google published a set of numbers which gives us the percentage of Android OS popularity. In December, Oreo, the latest and greatest version of Android, was on as many Android handsets as Ice Cream Sandwich. That equated to 0.5% of the total Android pie, which after a few months of being available, is pretty comical.




This is what we get in January, Oreo now sits at 0.7% (up from 0.5%), Nougat grew to 26.3% (up from 23.3%), Marshmallow fell to 28.6% (down from 29.7%), Lollipop now sits at 25.1%, KitKat is at 12.8%, Jelly Bean is at 5.6%, and Ice Cream Sandwich + Gingerbread equals to the remaining 0.9%
