Android 11 is used on a quarter of smartphones, but it’s not the most popular version


Android 11 may have seen record adoption after its launch last year, but still not the most used version. The data shared by Google does not currently include Android 12; It will still be necessary to wait to find out whether the new version, released a little more than a month ago, is successful and quickly adopted.

According to the report published in Android Studio, Android 11 R is used in 24.3% almost a quarter of total active Android devices. But it’s not the most popular version of Android. Actually it’s a little behind Android 10 ranks first with 26.5% market share. It was quickly adopted by users, as just 10 months after its launch, 400 million devices were already using it.

It is interesting to note that older versions of Android have not necessarily become the least used version, as Android 7.1 Nougat is available on only 2.9% of devices, while Android 7.0 Nougat is available on 3.4%. 5.1% even for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The latter, released over 6 years ago, is still surprisingly popular today.

Some of the latest devices, including Google’s Pixel smartphones, can already install the new Android 12 update. Samsung, for its part, has also started rolling out Android 12 with One UI 4 on its 2021 Galaxy S21s, but this will be required wait until next year for other smartphones to be compatible. Other manufacturers are also expected to start rolling out the update to their high-end smartphones soon.
