Android distribution numbers for November
Each month Google publishes a chart that offers us an overall image over the various versions of Android and how are they distributed among users. The chart for the month of November, published earlier today, paints a not so encouraging picture for Android.

Even though it made its debut on the market back in August, the latest version of Android hasn't been adopted by too many smartphone companies. Currently, only 0.3% of the devices that visited the Google Play Store in early November were running Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.

The situation won't improve by much since HMD and Huawei are the ones that will offer Android 8.0 Oreo updates for some of its smartphones by the end of the year. Things might get better at the beginning of 2018, as more companies will start pushing Oreo updates to devices already available on the market.

The rest of the chart shows a slight increase of Android Nougat in comparison with the last month's numbers, while Marshmallow and Lollipop market shares dropped slightly. You can find the full list of Android versions and their corresponding distribution numbers in the picture attached.
