Android 8.0 Oreo Accounts For 0.2% Of Android Distribution

"Battery-saving best practices such as using JobScheduler should be adopted to ensure your app is battery-efficient and able to perform background tasks when possible", said the Android Wear blog.

It might seem off that there are devices that haven't been upgraded to the never versions of Android, but the onus on rolling out updates is on the handset maker not Google, and companies such as Samsung and LG tend to not push out updates to older smartphones. Well, even after more than a year from its release, Android Nougat should have been running on much more devices than just 17.8%.

Movement among the versions tends to the glacial, but Android "Nougat" 7.x has notably gained 2 extra points in percentage share. Android Lollipop takes up 27.7 percent of active Android devices with Android 5.0 Lollipop running on 6.7 percent of devices and Android 5.1 Lollipop at 22 percent that checked into Google Play.

The issue was brought to the attention of the Army yesterday through a Twitter post by lawyer Aman Wadud where he said, "Mohd". Haque wondered why he had to be humiliated so many times. "We produced all documents at the tribunal court that time".

Still, it's not all that surprising that the update has only made its way onto 0.2 per cent of devices, as the biscuit-themed update has only so-far been released for Google's own Nexus and Pixel devices, and is shipping only on Sony's Xperia XZ1 handset. This is the reason why continued updates for these phones don't make a big difference on the distribution chart. In th previous month, both carried respective market shares of 32.2 percent and 28.8 percent.

The share of Oreo is expected to grow in the next distribution chart as Google will launch the Pixel 2 lineup.

Google Android Oreo now on 0.2 per cent devices and the adoption rate continues to rise very slowly. The hierarchy ends with Android KitKat (14.5%), Android Jelly Bean (7.6%), Android Ice Cream Sandwich (0.6%) and Android Gingerbread (0.6%).
