Android Nougat now on 0.7% of Android devices, Froyo finally bids adieu


Google is out with its monthly Android distribution chart which is also the first one of 2017. Android Nougat 7.0 is still crawling at 0.5%, up just 1% from last month. However, Android Nougat 7.1 has made its debut in the chart at 0.2%. This means the Google’s latest Android OS is currently available only on 0.7% of all Android devices.


Meanwhile, Android 6.0 Marshmallow adoption has increased to 29.6% from 26.3% in December. Android Lollipop (5.0/5.1) has decreased from 34% to 33.4% this month while KitKat (4.4) is also down from 24% to 22.6%. Jelly Bean (Android 4.1-4.3) claimed 11.6 percent in January, down from 12.8% in December. Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread are present on 1.1% and 1.0% respectively.

Other highlight of this month’s chart is that Google has finally decided to bid adieu to Froyo version of the OS, as its numbers have gone down below 0.1%.
