The Android distribution numbers have been updated for May, 2017, and wouldn’t you know it, Nougat has seen a massive increase in usage. By massive, I mean a solid 2.2%. Huge. Now at 7.1%, up from last month’s 4.9%, Nougat really seems to be rolling out well, with devices getting the update all the time it seems. 

As for the rest of the numbers, Marshmallow hasn’t changed from April, still sitting at 31.2%. The same goes for Lollipop at 31.0%. KitKat saw a slight decrease to 18.8% (down from 20.0%), Jelly Bean down to 9.1% (10.1%), Ice Cream Sandwich to 0.8% (0.9%) and Gingerbread somehow gained users at 1.0%, up from last months 0.9%. Seriously, that should be the headline, “Gingerbread gains users in May, 2017!”

Last month’s numbers can be found here.
