Number of Devices Running on Android Nougat Increases in May 2017

If you own an Android-powered smartphone tablet or smartphone, or at least you keep up with the latest tech news of the past couple of months, then you most likely know that the newest version of the OS is rolling out steadily on most devices. As more and more cellphone carriers start offering the option to upgrade devices to Android Nougat, more and more devices naturally upgrade to it.

In the month of May 2017, the beloved operating system has now reached a whopping 2.2% on the market. Naturally, there are more devices running on Nougat 7.0 than Nougat 7.1, but the situation seems to be rapidly changing. And, as it goes, older versions of the OS such as Marshmallow and Gingerbread have met rapid declines, because Google plans to upgrade most newer devices to Nougat in the following months.

In fact, Android Nougat has become so widely rolled out to devices that even mid-range smartphones are getting it now. Google is steadily optimizing its newest OS for a series of phones, and very few are reportedly dropped from the list of updates. Of course, of many of us know by now, the company is dropping some Nexus devices from the updated roster.

Other mid-ranges produced by Asian companies are yet unclear on whether or not their phones will receive the update. You can check manually for the update in your phone’s setting, but it’s advisable to wait for it to be rolled out naturally. This way, you can make sure that the version you’re receiving is perfectly optimized for your phone.

The months to come will see many more devices being upgraded to Android Nougat 7.0 and 7.1, and the market percentage will thus increase tremendously.
