Google finally updates Android usage share; Pie on 10.4% of Google Play devices

For the first time since October 26, Google has updated its usage share report for Android. Typically, the report is released monthly, so there are some big changes. Up until yesterday, one could reasonably say that Android 9.0 Pie is on less than 0.1% of Google Play devices according to the company's most recent report. Now it's on 10.4%.

The results are according to data collected during a seven-day period ending on May 7.

Version Codename API Distribution
2.3.3-2.3.7 Gingerbread 10 0.3%
4.0.3-4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich 15 0.3%
4.1.x Jelly Bean 16 1.2%
4.2.x 17 1.5%
4.3 18 0.5%
4.4 KitKat 19 6.9%
5.0 Lollipop 21 3.0%
5.1 22 11.5%
6.0 Marshmallow 23 16.9%
7.0 Nougat 24 11.4%
7.1 25 7.8%
8.0 Oreo 26 12.9%
8.1 27 15.4%
9.0 Pie 28 10.4%

Anything that's not on the list is on fewer than 0.1% of Google Play devices, so that would include things like the Android Q beta, Android 3 Honeycomb, and versions before Gingerbread like FroYo and Eclair.

There's not much to compare the numbers with, being that it's been so long since we've had an Android usage report. This is the first time we've seen Pie on the list, even though it was announced last August. Even though Android Q is just around the corner, Pie should continue to gain momentum for a while to come.
