Hello Mi Fans,
Well, it's that time of the month again. Like last month, Google's a bit later than it usually is with these numbers, and it isn't because we have a new version of Android for the chart. Although 8.1 has been released, this month's platform distribution numbers don't include it.
In addition to Android Oreo, the Nougat version that comprises Android 7.0 and Android 7.1 builds reports growth with 23.3 percent of the share, compared to 20.6 percent in November. Companies like Samsung and Xiaomi, among others, are continuously bringing new Nougat devices. This appears to be the prime reason behind its growth.
Other than Android Oreo and Nougat, all its other major flavors have declined. The distribution share of Android Marshmallow fell down to 29.7 percent from 30.9 percent in November, while Android Lollipop declined to 26.3 percent, compared to 27.2 percent. Android KitKat reduced to 13.4 percent from 13.8 percent last month, while Jelly Bean contracted to 5.9 percent from 6.2 percent.
If you just want to look at the numbers, here they are: Android version stats, December 2017
According to Google, the numbers you're seeing above are compiled from all the Android devices that have visited it's Play Store during a seven-day period ending December 11th.
