Android Nougat garners a 0.3% adoption rate in first two months of release

Android's Nougat OS has achieved a 0.3% adoption rate in the two months since it launched.

The OS was first released in August 2016 and launched exclusively on Nexus devices and Google's Pixel phone.

Android Lollipop, in its 5.0 and 5.1 forms combined, hold the largest share of OS adoption with 34.1%. KitKat, version 4.4, is the second largest OS with a 25.2% adoption rate.

Two sides to the story

On the one hand, given the OS' limited availability at present, 0.3% isn't a poor adoption rate. On the other hand, Android Froyo, version 2.2, currently holds a 0.1% adoption rate.

The stats do not track devices that don't have Google Play installed and discounts many devices in China, as well as Amazon's Fire devices.

It's likely the figure will increase substantially over the next year.
