Nougat usage nearly in double digits in latest Android platform distribution report

Google’s latest Android platform distribution numbers are in, and they’re just about what you’d expect.

The June 2017 Android distribution stats reveal which versions of Android were used to access the Play Store during the seven-day period ending on June 5. During this time, Android Nougat (7.0 and 7.1) was present on 9.5 percent of devices, which is up from the 7.1 percent of devices that it was on last month.


Marshmallow held steady at 31.2 percent usage for another month, while Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1) slipped from 32.0 percent last month to 30.8 percent this month. KitKat fell, too, dropping to 18.1 percent usage this month. Jelly Bean (4.1 through 4.3) usage fell to 8.8 percent and Ice Cream Sandwich held at 0.8 percent. Finally, Gingerbread slipped from 1.0 percent in May to 0.8 percent in June.

Nougat usage continues to grow as we see new flagships released with Nougat in tow, like the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8, and as older devices get updated to 7.0. That’ll continue throughout June, so don’t be surprised to see Nougat usage climb into the double digits the next time that we report Google’s Android platform distribution stats.
