In the Android Studio section, Google updated distribution statistics for different versions of the operating system. Previously, the company reported monthly on the segmentation of the green robot in the market. but this attracted a wave of criticism for poor performance in distributing the current version of Android. Therefore, this practice was terminated and only once every six months it publishes statistics in Android Studio. The most recent update came from Google on May 9th.

Devices with Android 11 and later are now the largest piece of the pie with 28.3%, up from 24.2% six months earlier, according to new distribution data for 2022. The share of devices still using Android 10 has decreased at 23.9% from 26.5% in November.

The number of Android 9 devices is 16.2% of the total number of green robot gadgets. Android Oreo has 11.6% and Nougat 5%. The share of devices operating in Marshmallow is 3.9%. Models with Lollipop (3%), KitKat (1%) and Lelly Bean (0.4%) are still attached to the market. Unfortunately, there was no place for Android 12 in the statistics and this immediately shows that the share of devices with it on board is negligible.
