Issues will have to be busy on the Googleplex at this time. That is the handiest explanation why I will suppose that Google could not get any person to offload the most recent platform distribution information on-line for the closing six weeks. The closing time we had recent numbers was once the start of February, however Google has simply issued an out-of-cycle dashboard replace with new numbers. There aren’t any surprises right here—Oreo continues to be rising (slowly) and previous variations of Android are shrinking (slowly).
Here is a breakdown of this month’s numbers, which can be in comparison to February 2018 as that was once the closing information level we had.
Android model stats, April 2018
|Android model||Earlier information (%)||Present information (%)||Trade (pp)|
We are lacking information from March, and the information is 2 weeks overdue in April. That makes it difficult to judge the trade monthly. On the other hand, we will take a look at the place Oreo is at this time in comparison to Nougat closing April. As of early April 2017, Nougat was once at a blended four.nine% of energetic Android gadgets. Each variations of Oreo at this time upload as much as four.6%. So, it is in the similar ballpark, however falling somewhat at the back of Nougat.
There may be been 0 trade within the percentage of Android 2.three, four.Zero, or four.1 in the previous few months. Some more moderen builds are down a little bit, however Nougat continues to be gaining utilization at a slower fee than Oreo. The developments are solid at this time, however confidently, Android P choices up steam quicker due to Oreo’s Treble enhance when it drops later this 12 months.
