Stats shows that Nougat is coming up while Marshmallow is still the boss

    Today, 2nd of May, Google recently updated the developer dashboard for May, giving us an overview of the Android device ecosystem. And it is awesome for the company.

    The former Operating System such as Android Lollipop 5.1 has more users that are still using it up till now but all the glory goes to the former OS, Marshmallow 6.0 that is still the boss.

    Meanwhile, Nougat 7.0 is increasing and coming very fast at a speedy rate and the company loves it. Nougat gained more this month (2.2%) as a share of all devices than it has in any previous month. Last month was close at 2.1%.

    Even 7.1 (which runs on fewer devices) moved up slightly. This puts it at 7.1% total across the two versions. At this time last year, Marshmallow was running on 4.6% of devices.

    But hopefully, before the launch of the Android O, the Nougat 7.0 and 7.1 must have moved up drastically more than its predecessor.
