Latest Android distribution numbers show a tiny rise for Nougat

Google's latest official Android distribution numbers show only a slight rise for Nougat's share, while Marshmallow and Lollipop continue to stay on top.

Published onDecember 5, 2016


Android 7.0 Nougat has only made a tiny appearance in the latest official Android distribution numbers for December 2016. The latest version of the OS came in at 0.3 percent in November, but today’s December share numbers only saw Nougat go up just one-tenth of one percent. While Nougat’s 0.4 percent distribution may not seem like a lot, over-the-air updates just recently started rolling out to other devices like the LG G5Moto Z and Moto Z and a few others.

The rest of the numbers for December show Marshmallow with 26.3 percent of the total install base, another big rise from 24 percent in November. Lollipop (Android 5.0/5.1) came in with a total of 34 percent, down ever so slightly from November’s 34.1 percent. KitKat (Android 4.4) is shown with a 24 percent share, down from 25.2 percent in November. Jelly Bean (Android 4.1-4.3) claims 12.8 this month, down from 13.7 percent compared to last month.

The Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread versions of the OS are still hanging on with 1.2 percent for each in the new numbers, down from 1.3 for each compared to their standings in November. Froyo is still hanging on with its tiny 0.1 percent, the same numbers as it had last month.
