Google's Android platform distribution for April 2017 shows Nougat is nearly at 5%
According to the data collected during a 7-day period ending on April 3, Android Nougat accounts for 4.9% market share. The smaller market share listed by Google, Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich have as low as 0.9% market share each.
Even Jelly Bean, an Android version launched five years ago is used more often than Nougat, as the OS sits at 10.1%. Android KitKat and Marshmallow come next with 20% and 31.2% market share, respectively.
As mentioned earlier, Android Lollipop is still in the lead with 32% of active devices. Although Nougat market share continues to increase each month, it gains seem to be lower than expected. For example, the number of devices running Android Nougat rose 2.1 % from last month.
Hopefully, things will improve significantly in the coming months, especially that Google had already released a preview version of Android O.
