Wondering which versions of Android are being used the most as we head into 2018? Wonder no more.

Google today released its updated Android distribution numbers, which show the usage of Android versions that accessed the Play Store during the 7-day period ending on January 8, 2018. Android Oreo (8.0 and 8.1) grew a tiny bit from last month, finishing at 0.7 percent usage.

Android Nougat (7.0 and 7.1) was the only other version to grow this month, finishing at 26.3 percent usage. That makes it the second most-used version behind Android Marshmallow (6.0), which slipped to 28.6 percent usage this month.

Android Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) is still claiming a significant piece of this pie, despite having slipped to 25.1 percent usage. Android KitKat (4.4) slipped to 12.8 percent this month, while Android Jelly Bean (4.1-4.3) fell to 5.6 percent usage this month.

Rounding things out is Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and Android Gingerbread (2.3), which held steady at 0.5 percent and 0.4 percent usage, respectively. googleandroiddistributionjan2018aam
