Android Oreo Sees 0.2 Percent Adoption in the First Month after Release

Android Oreo hits 0.2% adoption after 1 month

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...

Thus talking about the latest version, Android 8.0 Oreo which has been mostly rolled out to Pixel and Nexus devices, it is now running on 0.2 percent of active devices.

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.
