According to the latest number, Oreo saw only 0.1 percent increase during the month, and is now actively running on 0.3 percent of active devices.

Interestingly, Android Nougat adaption was also 0.3 percent during the same period.

Speaking of other Android version Nougat continues to rise, while the other iterations share continue to drop. However, Marshmallow continues to be the most widely-used Android version.

The Android Distribution numbers are gathered from devices running Android 2.2 accessed the Play Store in a seven-day period ending on November 9, 2017. It's worth mentioning that devices running older Android version like Honeycomb and Froyo are not included. Also devices that don't have Google Play installed like Android phone and tablets in China, are not taken into account as well.
