Android Nougat will soon finally have a two-digit market share, according to Google's numbers. Last month, its slice of the Android market pie increased from 4.9 percent in early April to over 7 percent. Now, its market share stands at 9.5 percent.

These are the Android usage figures based on the data collected by Google during the 7-day period that ended on June 5:

  • Jelly Bean - 8.8 percent
  • KitKat - 18.1 percent
  • Lollipop - 30.8 percent
  • Marshmallow - 31.2 percent
  • Nougat - 9.5 percent

Although Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich continue to show up in Google's pie chart, they both can be considered extinct, having a negligible market share of 0.8 percent each.

Android Marshmallow is stuck at 31.2 percent for the third month in a row, while Lollipop finally lost its domination, dropping from 32 percent to 30.8 percent.

These being said, we expect Nougat's growth to continue, especially since it's flagship season and, in addition to the Huawei P10/P10 Plus, Galaxy S8/S8+, and LG G6, others like the OnePlus 5 or Andy Rubin's Essential are expected to show up soon.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
