Google has also shared a pie chart that reveals data about the relative number of devices running a given version of the Android platform. In July it registed just 11.5% of active users, and in the last month it has reached 15.8% (up from 13.5% last month).

Android Oreo also brings numerous new features such as picture-in-picture, which allows users to do two tasks simultaneously, like checking the calendar while planning a party on a Duo video call. This means that the AOSP Oreo and Lineage OS 15 ROMs that are featured are built from the ground up by dedicated community members, and thanks to proprietary bits of code in some phones' hardware drivers and other bits, may not work completely at this time. As Google is yet to offer a fix for the problem, we could try restoring or flashing an older Android firmware as a workaround for this issue.

The Android 8.0 was announced this year on 21 August and promised to be first upgraded on the smartphones like Pixel and Nexus smartphones.

All the attention may be on Apple right now, but that hasn't stopped Google from releasing its updated Android distribution figures in the developer dashboard.

Expect Oreo to make its debut next month with the Oreo update hitting Nexus and Pixel devices recently. Nexus users should enjoy the fruits of Google's labor because this could be the last major update for the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. However, the latest Android Oreo version could not find its place in the chart for the same month - notably, Android versions with less than 0.1 percent share of active devices aren't listed, implying Oreo is now on fewer than those many devices. Check out our detailed coverage on the upcoming Android O and read this list to see if you will get the update to Android 8 Nougat.
