Google has released the latest distribution numbers for its Android mobile operating system for the month of October. Despite being absent last month, the latest version of the OS, 8.0 Oreo, has made its way onto this month’s chart and shows that it’s currently installed on 0.2% of all devices. Google’s Pixel and Nexus devices alongside recent smartphones from Sony are to thank for this, but expect more manufacturers like Samsung, LG, HTC, and Moto to jump on the bandwagon soon as well.

For reference, Android Nougat is now on 17.8% of devices (up 2% over last month), Marshmallow is now on 32% (down 0.2% over last month), Lollipop is on 27.7% (down 1.1% over last month), KitKat is on 14.5% (down 0.6% over last month), Jelly Bean is still on 6.6% (down 0.3% over last month), and just like last month, Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread are still on 0.6% of devices each.
