The share of Android is Nougat made up 1%

The share of devices running Android Nougat reached 1%, follows from the official report of Google. On the seventh month after the release of “Nougat” bypassed even Ice Cream Sandwich, having risen to fifth place in the ranking of popularity of operating systems. The main part of the gadgets, which amounted to 0.9%, occurred in the original iteration of Nougat, while the version 7.1 took only 0.3%.

As expected, the most numerous version of the OS remains Android Lollipop. As of February 2017 it accounts for exactly one third of all devices that are running “green robot”. Such a high popularity of “Lollipop” was provided by the smartphone manufacturers from China, regularly exploiting the outdated version of the OS for more than two years.

In addition to Nougat, a significant growth was the sixth iteration of Android. Since the publication of the last report the share of Marshmallow rose more than 1%, came close to Lollipop. It accounts for over 30% of devices. It is possible that the widespread availability of Android smartphones 6.0.1 and experiencing a reduced version of 5.0 will soon bring “Marshmallow” in the top, leaving him out of competition.
