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)
2.three Zero.three Zero.three Zero
four.Zero Zero.four Zero.four Zero
four.1 1.7 1.7 Zero
four.2 2.6 2.2 -Zero.four
four.three Zero.7 Zero.6 -Zero.1
four.four 12 10.five -1.five
five.Zero five.four four.nine -Zero.five
five.1 19.2 18 -1.2
6.Zero 28.1 26 -2.1
7.Zero 22.three 23 +Zero.7
7.1 6.2 7.eight +1.6
eight.Zero Zero.eight four.1 +three.three
eight.1 Zero.three Zero.five +Zero.2

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.
