Just two weeks after the latest reporting figures, Google today sent monthly Android distribution numbers. Due to the length of time, the September statistics are unchanged, with Android 9 Pie still not present one month after launch.
This stagnation is due in part to Google's latest inconsistency in reporting figures. August numbers came on the very last day of the month, while July was delayed and June completely skipped. This may be a mistake, with Google possibly forgetting to update "Platform Versions." The OpenGL ES version and screen sizes / densities sections were also updated today.
Android 9 Pie received its first update with the Android Security Update at the beginning of this month, so it should be fully rolled out to Pixel and Pixel 2 users. Essential Phone is the only other device running Pie, while several phones from different manufacturers are testing it.
September figures were published today on the form ̵
Combining 14.6%, it is trumpet of several versions including Nougat 30.8%, Marshmallow 22.7% and Lollipop 19.2%. KitKat is 8.6% and jelly bean 3.5%. Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread is at .3% each.
These numbers are compiled from Android devices that opened the Play Store during a seven-day period ending September 13th.
