UPDATE: Well, Google changed the date on their distribution page to show that new data had been collected as of yesterday, but didn’t actually update numbers. I must have had an incorrect number for Oreo in August’s numbers leading to this fun post that shouldn’t exist. Ignore!
Google updated the Android distribution numbers two weeks ago, the first time since releasing Android Pie. Pie didn’t make the cut, yet Google is back again today with another update. Pie still isn’t there, and as you can imagine, the numbers haven’t changed much in general in such a short time.
Here is a quick breakdown of the September Android distribution numbers:
- Oreo: 14.6% (+0.2%)
- Nougat: 30.8%
- Marshmallow: 22.7%
- Lollipop: 19.2%
- KitKat: 8.6%
- Jelly Bean: 3.5%
- Ice Cream Sandwich: 0.3%
- Gingerbread: 0.3%
See, not much of a difference. The only change was to Oreo, which picked up another 0.2% of the Android user base.
Last month’s numbers can be seen here.
