The latest major Android version continues its solid growth, finally nearing the 10 percent market share barrier. Back in April, Nougat's market share was less than 5 percent.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
