One of the objectives of the Google Pixel in the time is reduce those percentages of adoption of them new versions of Android that have to its more guilty to them layers custom of them varied manufacturers of Android. These manufacturers are not going to be undaunted by the big G and incorporate those layers to be identified from the rest of smartphones on the market, although in the long run also going them to harm.
Google has published today the new data of the adoption of the various versions of Android. This special green cake, shows that Android 7.0 Nougat, which was released in the month of September, is now in 0.4 percent of Android devices, pending that will start to get all those updates in this December and future months to top smartphones.
Although that 0.4 percent sounds a little, is the preamble to be begin to reach the figures of Marshmallow that I used to get for later, since a Nougat joined in this year a few months earlier.
Them changes more significant if them compared to the month of November is that Nougat has uploaded a 0,1 per cent to get to the 0.4%; Android 6.0 Marshmallow rises 2.3 points to obtain a 26.3%; Android 5.0 / 5.1 Lollipop low a 0.1% to stay is in the 34 per cent; and Android 4.4 KitKat low its presence in a 1.2 per cent up to the 24%.
We are left with a Jelly Bean (4.1, 4.2 and 4.3) Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0), Gingerbread and Froyo with a 12.8%, a 1.2%, other 1.2% and a 0.1% respectively.
The adoption of Android now Lollipop dominates it, then second Marshmallow, KitKat in third and Jelly Bean in room. Now only hope that Marshmallow will become the most popular version for next year when the number of Nougat increases substantially with all those updates to Android devices supported.
