Google recently updated its Android sales numbers after six months of silence. Things are looking pretty good – 10 percent of all Android devices now use the latest version, putting the implementation ahead of schedule.
It's no secret that full updates to Android operating systems are slowly coming to devices that are not as close to pixels as they are essential, so it's a bit of a surprise to see Pie assuming ten percent after eight months. For comparison, Nougat and Oreo each took ten months to reach the same number, showing progress, even though overall 1
As with the other numbers, Oreo now accounts for 28 percent of the equipment, with nougat 19 percent. Marshmallow, Lollipop and KitKat are running at 17%, 14.5% and 7% respectively. Thus, the three latest versions (Nougat, Oreo and Pie) in almost 58 percent of all Android devices in the wild. That's a lot better than the numbers a few years ago.
The increased adoption rate is likely due to Project Treble, which Google created for just this reason: helping manufacturers create faster updates for their devices. It is hoped that this will remain a trend and acceptance rates will rise and exceed expectations, since Treble since Oreo is a feature that had to implement the manufacturers.
Although ten percent still is nothing special after eight months – Especially compared to iOS 12, which was adopted in February 2019 to 83 percent, it again shows promising prospects for the future of Android operating system updates. All new devices now support treble out of the box, so hoping for faster OS updates for all Android devices.
