When it comes to Android Nougat, the Nougat 7.0 version took up a larger share with 22.3 percent (up from 21.1 percent in January) and Nougat 7.1 has 6.2 percent market share (up from 5.2 percent in January).

In the first week of every month, Internet search giant Google releases the latest Android distribution number which provides us with information pertaining to the distribution of different versions of Android in the market. For a lot of phones, the version of Android that came installed your phone when you bought it is often the one that it'll always have. Android Oreo, similar to Nougat before, took a good five months to pass the one percent adoption rate. Android Marshmallow is still going strong with 28.1% market share, followed by Lollipop with 24.6%.

After 18 months from its initial release back in 2016 Android 7.0 and 7.1, Nougat has become the most used version of the Android Operating System.

Those Android versions that have a share of less than 0.1% haven't been included in this distribution chart. Per Google's Platform Versions page, the latest and greatest version of the company's mobile operating system finally has 1.1 percent adoption.

Meanwhile, as for Google's latest Android Oreo update, it is steadily gaining momentum, ever since its release previous year in August. Android Gingerbread is on 0.3%, while Ice Cream Sandwich is powering 1.4% devices. With more smartphones expected to ship with Android Oreo out of the box, it is expected that the numbers will grow faster now. But that's a minority compared to the 65 percent of devices running the latest iOS 11 software, which only emphasizes how far Google has to go. If you're an Android user what version is your favorite?
