Google releases beta of next Android Wear release

However, the new version of Android has already made it in Google's Android distribution chart for the month of October.

Speaking of Nougat which was released last August, it has seen a total of increase of 2.0% from 15.8% last month to 17.8% this month.

Now. only the Pixel devices like Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixel C along with some Nexus devices like Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus Player have received the Android 8.0 Oreo update.

So, here are the detailed Android platform share figures, with comparison to the previous month for some context...

GOOGLE HAS PUBLISHED its latest Android adoption stats, which reveal that Oreo has so-far been installed on just 0.2 per cent of devices.

As described by the Android Wear team, "In this update, users can choose the types of notifications they receive via an app through notification channels". However, Google's project Treble might help change these numbers in the future as it will make it easier for the manufacturers to upgrade their devices to the latest version of Android. However, it has finally appeared in this month's Android distribution chart with a percentage of 0.2 percent. The latest major version of Android typically takes more than a year to become the most-used release, and Oreo's story will likely be no different. At the bottom of the pile, Gingerbread and Jelly Bean keep holding on at 0.6% each, but it's only a matter of time now. Lollipop follows second (27.7%) but is also continuing to dip. Android Marshmallow has the highest market share right now with 32% market share. The almost two-and-half-year old OS still continues to dominate Android's charts, and many phones remain on Marshmallow, especially budget ones.
