Android Distribution chart for November shows Oreo at 0.3%

As you can see, Android 7 Nougat was the big victor in the November distribution chart with a gain of 2.8% over its October results.

Android is adding a new feature that will give you more information on apps that are draining your battery.

These not very encouraging numbers stem from the fact that phone makers, as has been the case over the past few years, have been taking their own sweet time in updating phones with Android's latest version.

We all have apps installed on our phones that we simply don't use.

So, here are the detailed Android platform share figures, with comparison to the previous month for some context... Last year's Android Nougat (7.0 and 7.1) combine for 20.6% devices. And considering that Google's latest platform version breakdown shows that just 0.3% of devices have been updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, there are approximately 1.99 billion phones and tablets that have yet to receive the most recent update (which originally launched in August, by the way).

He writes: "In May 2017, Google announced that there are over two billion active Android devices". The interesting part is that this 0.3 percent gives us a perspective about how lax the rollout for latest updates for Android-powered smartphones is across the market. He found that the proportion of devices that are the most outdated is even greater today than in 2014.

Let's hope that enough devices are updated by the end of the year to get to 10%.

In terms of features, Android Oreo is equipped with a customizable system for managing notifications, which can be grouped by type of application to facilitate access. Indeed, the majority of devices are still on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, though Android 7.0 Nougat is just a fraction of a percentage point behind.
