Android Oreo runs on 0.3 percent of devices: Google

Android Oreo runs on 0.3 percent of devices: Google

Ahead in the report, Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop, now supports 6.4 and 20.8 percent devices respectively, which makes it the second most used operating system after Marshmallow.

Google's latest Android OS 8.0 Oreo is now running on 0.3 per cent devices.

The analysis, by hardware engineer Dan Luu, uses data from Google's developer dashboard to look at the figures for outdated Android devices between 2010 and today. The latest distribution numbers from Google reveal that the Android Oreo is inching closer to 1 percent of active Android devices though it may take couple of more months.

A new analysis of Android's notorious update problems suggests patching is actually getting worse over time. This chart is an indication of what version of Android is running on how many devices in the market in terms of percentage.

The latest series in Monterrey replaces a three-game set that had been scheduled for Petco Park. Major League Baseball plans to conduct a series in Mexico in each of the next six years.

But Luu's graph also shows that uptake of new versions of Android appears to be slowing down.

These numbers are compiled from Android devices that accessed the Play Store during a seven-day period ending on November 9th. In comparison, Android Lollipop was running on 27.7 per cent devices in October. The two combine for a total of 20.6% and trump last month's 17.8%. One reason is people reportedly holding on to their existing devices for longer. With Android 8.1 Oreo, when a device is running low on space, an automatic cleanup process will tidy after these unused apps.

The Android Oreo 8.0 stands lowest on the table, even below the 2nd Gen Android Gingerbread which is now running in 0.5 percent of devices next to the Ice Cream Sandwich (0.5 percent).
