Android distribution for July shows Nougat in double digits


On a regular basis, Google releases statistics for its Android versions, showing just how far the newest version is moving along in adoption. It also shows the other versions inevitably getting smaller in numbers, but for most that’s good news.

The newest report shows that the latest version of Android, Nougat 7.0 and 7.1, has officially made it into the double digits. Specifically, Android 7.0 is now sitting at 10.6%, while Android 7.1 is at 0.9%.

Meanwhile, Android 6.0 Marshmallow is still reigning supreme on the list, sitting at a comfortable 31.8% and actually growing 0.6% from last month’s report. Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop has a combined adoption of 30.1%, while Android 4.4 KitKat is now at 17.1 percent.

At the bottom of the list is a tie between Android 2.3.3 – 2.3.7 Gingerbread and Android 4.0.3 – 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, both at 0.7%.

All of this is pretty typical, with the newest version of Android slowly gaining ground on devices out there in the wild. It’s a slow process, but the numbers continue to grow. Android Nougat will get a big boost after Android O, the next major version of the mobile operating system, launches later this year, too.
