Android Nougat usage grew from last month, finishing at 17.8 percent, while Android Marshmallow usage slipped a bit to 32 percent. Recently Sony launched its Xperia XZ1 in the market with Android Oreo running out of the box.
The latest Android version - Android Oreo - was released a little more than a month ago and Google's Android distribution numbers for the month of October reveal that the new operating system has recorded a 0.2 percent adoption rate with the first month of its release. With carrier network testing, chip testing, OEM testing, etc, the Android Oreo update for most phones will probably appear by the time the Android P is out. Android Lollipop still takes more than a quarter at 27.7 percent and Kit Kat 14.5 percent.
So, here are the detailed Android platform share figures, with comparison to the previous month for some context...

Bali volcano could erupt any moment
The volcano, located some 50 miles from Kuta, a popular tourist destination, has been rumbling since August. The U.S.is advising against any visits to the volcano, warning that an eruption could disrupt flights.
According to October's distribution chart, Android 7.0 Nougat rose by 1.6% to 15.8% while Android 7.1 Nougat saw an increase of 0.4% to 2.0%.
Other older Android versions listed in the latest distribution data include Android Jelly Bean which has a combined share of 6.6 percent while Android 4.0.x or Ice Cream Sandwich has 0.6 percent share, and Android Gingerbread (v2.3.3-2.3.7), in Google's latest numbers, registered a share of 0.6 percent.
To put this in perspective, any new version of the Android OS typically takes up to a year to permeate the market and become a widely-used release. This is the reason why continued updates for these phones don't make a big difference on the distribution chart.
