It’s now October, and according to Google’s latest Android Distribution report, Android Pie is yet to break the list (meaning it’s on less than 0.1% of devices). Pie was announced last announced last August, so it might take time for the update to reach devices.

On the bright side, Oreo is now on 21.5% of devices. That’s a few percentage points from September’s 19.2%.

Nougat is still on most Android phones with 28.2%. Marshmallow sits on third with 21.3%, finally edged by Oreo. Lollipop still has a sizeable chunk albeit shrinking at 17.9%.

At least Jelly Bean, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Gingerbread are on its way out with 3%, 0.3%, and 0.2%, respectively.
