Google’s Android Nougat is Now Running on 9.5% of Devices

Google today released the current status numbers for Android, their mobile operating system. Although it’s one of the most popular operating systems of all time, it’s latest release, Nougat, isn’t. on the contrary, Android 7.0 and 7.1 combined are currently on 9.5% of all devices, taking a 2.4% leap over last month’s statistics. Obviously, OEMs like Samsung, LG, and HTC are to thank for releasing new handsets with the software onboard, but this is still a relatively low number. Thanks, fragmentation.
