Android 10 is the most popular version

The detailed numbers have been made available again, the update cycle is still protracted. Not developed by service providers and manufacturers, half of Android phones have an operating system older than two years.

We recently reported problems with the latest version of Android, but in the meantime, Google has once again made available the exact distribution numbers for each generation. Data from more than a year of omissions show that the situation has not changed much.

The numbers published by the company are external source given news for the first time, from which we learn about the current state. It is immediately apparent that although two newer generations are available (at least for Google devices, as other manufacturers may not have made the latest version available), the majority of portable gadgets still have Android 10 Q, which is more than 26 percent. In second place is the Android 11 R unveiled last year, not far behind, at 24.3 percent overall, while in third place is Android 9 Pie, which originally appeared several years ago on devices that support it.

The rest of the list shows even older versions, the fourth being Android 8.1 Oreo, which already earned less than 10 percent, while Android 8.0 remained below 5 percent, although interestingly it was slightly ahead of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which It reached 5.1 percent. Other, also older versions may show weaker data, meaning they are virtually completely out of color, although the devices running them still have access to the online software store. So fragmentation is still with us, it won’t change in the near future, although Google obviously wants to get closer to Apple in this area too, which is much more stringent than updates.

Android 12, as well as modified versions from other vendors, will be available in the coming months, and a new generation will appear on the list as a result.
