5.7% of Android users now on Oreo, data shows
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.
