It’s that time again. Another month is in the books, which means Google has released the Android distribution numbers. Oreo has finally pushed past 1%. Last month, Oreo was at 0.7%. This month it’s a whopping 1.1%. The Pixel 2 devices haven’t moved the needle very much in the grand scheme of Android.

Only Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread have lower distribution. Nougat continues to grow, now up 2% from last month. Marshmallow is slowly dropping, but still only a 0.5% change. Oreo will get a big boost when the Samsung Galaxy S9 and other 2018 flagships launch, but the numbers right now show how small of an impact the Pixel phones have had.
