The markets haven’t been kind to Android Nougat, even after six months of its launch, and Lollipop, another OS variant, continues to occupy the lion’s share.
According to a week-long data by Google, collected till April 3, Android Nougat makes up for 4.9% market share. Even Jelly Bean, an Android OS launched five years ago, covers 10.1% market, which is still larger in reach when compared to Nougat. Android Lollipop is at the dominant position with over 32% of active devices running on it.
Nougat hasn’t reached its phase of glory as of now, despite an increase in its share on a daily basis. Case in point: the number of devices running on Nougat shot up to 2.1% from the previous month, which isn’t flattering, but worth to acknowledge.
We hope, things improve in the consecutive months, especially when Google has already released a developer preview of its next Android O.
