Android 8.0 has been a low burn since its release last fall. It's been gaining a tenth of a percent here and there on the distribution charts, and Android 8.1 just appeared last month. This month, there's a slightly larger bump that finally pushed the latest and greatest Android up over 1%.

As usual, here are all the numbers compared to last month.

Android version stats, February 2018

Android version Previous data (%) Current data (%) Change (pp)
2.3 0.4 0.3 -0.1
4.0 0.5 0.4 -0.1
4.1 1.9 1.7 -0.2
4.2 2.9 2.6 -0.3
4.3 0.8 0.7 -0.1
4.4 12.8 12 -0.8
5.0 5.7 5.4 -0.3
5.1 19.4 19.2 -0.2
6.0 28.6 28.1 -0.5
7.0 21.1 22.3 +1.2
7.1 5.2 6.2 +1.0
8.0 0.5 0.8 +0.3
8.1 0.2 0.3 +0.1

The data is pretty straightforward this month—every version except for Nougat and Oreo lost a few tenths of a percent. That puts Nougat in the lead of all versions, finally beating out Marshmallow. It's 28.5% for Nougat and 28.1% for Marshmallow.

The collective 0.4% rise for Oreo versions leaves the newest platform over 1% usage for the first time. Oreo's growth has remaining in lock-step with Nougat's increases last year, and February is no different. This is also when Nougat crossed the 1% barrier last year. If that holds, we can look forward to Oreo being the biggest piece of the pie in a year. We can only hope that Project Treble makes the next round of updates a bit faster.
