Google Play has revealed analytics of Android users for the month of May. According to the latest report, the percentage of Oreo users has seen a climb to 5.7%.

While it's nowhere near laudable, this number stood at 4.6% last month, so it's something. With devices like Samsung Galaxy S9–and new releases like the Huawei P20 devices–that was released in March finally gaining ground in most markets, it's no surprise that the Oreo user base has grown. 

Android Nougat still leads the pack with 31.1%. Quite interestingly, Nougat had a 30.8% share last time out, so it's either that people are still buying Nougat devices–nine months after the launch of Oreo–or the sample used here is slightly skewed. Marshmallow comes in second with 25.5%, down from 26% last month. Lollipop is in third with 22.4%, and KitKat in fourth with 10.3%. Oreo completes the top five. 

Oreo 8.1’s market share stands at 0.8%, up from 0.5% last month. The Android P beta is already being sent out, so this figure is almost depressing.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
