After nearly six months, Android Oreo finally breaks 1% market share
Google has just released the Android distribution numbers for the month of February. At first glance, the situation looks terrible for those hoping that Oreo will pick up the pace and improve its market share.

However, looking back at the same numbers one year ago, we can confirm that deployment of new Android platforms is within the parameters. Google announced today that Android Oreo has finally passed 1% market share worldwide, which is exactly what Android Nougat did exactly one year ago.

Apparently, Android Oreo is now running on 1.1% of devices, while Android Nougat is now at 28.6%. Android Marshmallow is still going strong with 28.1% market share, followed by Lollipop with 24.6%.

Finally, Android KitKat still counts for 12% market share, whereas Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Gingerbread are the least used Android OSes with 5%, 0.4$ and 0.3% distribution.

Keep in mind that the numbers you see above have been collected during a 7-day period ending on February 5. Also, the oldest Android versions with less than 0.1% distribution aren't listed.
