At the end of 2018, Google stopped publishing monthly reports on the popularity of various versions of Android. However, this data is visible in the Android Studio IDE, launched back in 2013.
Android 12 launched just a few weeks ago, so there is no data on this operating system yet. Android 11 was released on September 8, 2020, with the operating system’s current share of 24.2%, which only allowed it to take second place. Android 10, released over two years ago, remains the most popular version of Android with a 26.5% share.
The shares were distributed as follows:
- Android 10 Q – 26.5%
- Android 11 R – 24.2%
- Android 9 Pie – 18.2%
- Android 8 Oreo – 13.7%
