Android 8.0 Oreo is on the charts, pre-Marshmallow versions are shrinking

The latest numbers are in and Oreo is on the charts! True, version 8.0 measured just 0.2% of all Androids out there but we think that number will grow quickly at the end of the year when a variety of flagships get the update. As for older versions, 7.0 Nougat grew 2 percentage points while 6.0 Marshmallow remained flat. On the plus side, Lollipop, KitKat and all the other older versions are shrinking slowly but surely.

At any rate, it was cool to see what this feature could do in motion.
