Google forgot to revise the Android distribution chart last month, now reporting some massive growth for Oreo compared to February numbers.
The December 2017 Android distribution numbers are in, and version 8.0 Oreo still can't rival the prevalence of Marshmallow, Lollipop, KitKat or Jelly Bean.
The newest Android distribution chart is the first to include 8.0 Oreo, at just 0.2 percent share, with Nougat gaining 2 percent over the past 30 days.
With Oreo not in yet, Nougat continues to trail Marshmallow and Lollipop's Android distribution scores, at least making the podium for the first time.
There's little to be happy about in Google's latest Android distribution report. Nougat has crossed the 10-percent milestone, but it still trails KitKat.
This month in Android distribution news: Nougat continues its slow rise to Jelly Bean-beating numbers, while Lollipop is still number one.
2.8 percent is still a small piece of the pie for 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat, but at least it's much bigger than 1.2 percent in previous Android distribution data.
The Android distribution chart for February 2017 includes month-to-month Marshmallow growth, Lollipop prevalence, and Nougat disappointment.
Marshmallow is spreading to new phones and tablets, but according to the latest distribution report, it's still the fourth most popular Android flavor.
Just like its predecessor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow presents widespread memory leaks, which Google should finally be able to patch soon.
Marshmallow seems incapable of surpassing the usage figures of Lollipop, KitKat or Jelly Bean, but compared to March, it's on a healthy upward trajectory.
Samsung Internet 4.0, the latest iteration of the OEM's native mobile web browser, can now work its ad-blocking magic on many Lollipop Galaxy devices.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow is unlikely to roll out to the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua anytime soon, but when it does, it'll definitely follow 5.0, not 5.1 Lollipop.
The latest Android distribution numbers highlight the ongoing struggles of 6.0 Marshmallow to leave a mark in a world dominated by KitKat and Lollipop.
Marshmallow more than doubled its Android distribution share in the past month, but aside from Froyo, everyOS flavor in use still beats 6.0.
