Android distribution for November 2017: Oreo stumbles while Nougat makes gains

Presumably these are the ones responsible for keeping Gingerbread, released in May 2010, and Ice Cream Sandwich from October 2011 still on Google's Android version distribution chart. While Android 7.0 rose by 1.9 percent, to 14.2 percent, Android 7.1 saw a smaller 0.4 percent rise to 1.6 percent. Last month, Android Oreo was reported running on 0.2 percent of Android devices, and it has now reached 0.3 percent of active devices.

Older Pixel and Nexus devices have been updated while other OEMs are in the very early stages of testing betas and previews. Now some of you might be confused as, phones like OnePlus, Samsung and some Android skins will indicate to you which app is draining your battery, but with this new update, it will become a feature included with the Android operating system rather than manufacturer enabled feature. Meanwhile, devices from HTC and Huawei launching with Oreo have been announced in recent weeks. While Android 7.0 Nougat is on 17.6 per cent devices, around 3.0 per cent users are on Android 7.1 Nougat.

As Android Authority noted this week, adoption of the latest version of Android has been slowing with each new version for the past few releases.
