Xposed Framework adds Android Oreo support with new beta

Android Oreo

Well, like every month, Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers for this month as well. The date was collected in the 7-day period ending January 8. That makes it the second most-used version behind Android Marshmallow (6.0), which slipped to 28.6 percent usage this month. Notably, Android 8.1 Oreo has now made it to the chart and is currently running in 0.2 per cent of active devices, bringing the total to 0.7 per cent.

We closed 2017 looking at Android usage numbers showing that more and more people are jumping over to Android Nougat. However, the only operating systems that have seen their shares grow from last month are Nougat and Oreo. And, a quick look at these numbers indicate that while the older versions of Android have dipped in shares, the recent versions of Android like Nougat and Oreo are climbing up the ladders. The latest iteration now commands a 0.7 percent share of the Android pie, up from 0.5 percent last month. It is also surprising to see that the share for Android Gingerbread at 0.4 percent of the market, considering the fact that it was launched 7 years ago. Lollipop 5.0 and 5.1 merge for 25.1%. The drop in older versions of Android is primarily driven by manufacturers updating the OS on older devices.
