The fresh stats also bode well for efforts to move people on from particularly ancient versions of Android. Oreo is still the most common release and jumped nearly 7 points to 28.3 percent, while Nougat dropped just shy of 10 points to hit 19.2 percent. Most of the older versions saw many users jump ship, too, although that still left KitKat with a 6.9 percent slice roughly six years after its arrival.
Just don’t expect frequent updates on Pie’s progress. Google is ditching its earlier habit of monthly adoption updates in favor a more relaxed pace, most likely once a quarter. You will get more context, though, so it might be clearer as to why a given version of Android is thriving or struggling.
