Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1 lead the table combined, followed by Marshmallow and Lollipop.
The topic of Android’s distribution figures has long been discussed, with great emphasis laid on the timely rollout of the latest updates. Over the years, the version of Android leading the chart at a particular time usually is the one that’s released at least two years ago from that date. Google keeps refreshing the chart every month to keep developers updated and the latest figures put 2016’s Android Nougat on the top by a considerable margin.
The chart shows that both the versions of Android Nougat — Android 7.0 and Android 7.1 put together a combined share of 30.8 per cent, which is considerably more than 2015’s Android Marshmallow 6.0’s 26 per cent. Android Lollipop follows behind at 22.9 per cent, showing that a majority of users are still stuck on the old 2014 version of Android.
