some time Ago Google stopped the monthly publication of the data of the distribution version Android. Shut off the faucet a year ago, in October 2018, updating the data six months after by reason of the I/O 2018. Up until now we had not had news about the adoption of the most recent versions of the Google mobile operating system.
Now another six months later, in the framework of the event for developers Android Dev Summit, Google publishes new data of distribution in order to highlight the impact that is having Project Treble version after version.
More upgraded devices and in less time
Google confirms that the impact of Project Treble has been very good, that the manufacturers are updating faster on their devices thanks to the separation of the layer the operating system layer drivers. The manufacturer is able to update the os layer using the current drivers, and not having to wait for the company to silicon provide them with the new drivers optimized for the new version.
Google highlights the success of the Project Treble on its own Beta Program Partner that you use for the previews of the upcoming versions of Android. If in Android Q (2018) launched the Beta for seven OEM devices Android Q (2019) launched the Beta for twelve OEM devices, in addition to its device Pixel.
The 22.6% of mobile was updated to Android 9 when it came to Android 10
Google stresses that the adoption of the new versions of Android has doubled. In July of 2018, just before the release of Android 9.0, Android 8.0 was in only 8.9% of the devices. This year, at the end of August, just before the release of Android 10, Android 9.0 was in 22.6% of devices.
Other data that you have remarked Google is that from 2018 the suppliers of silicon have reduced the average time of update in more than 3 months. Still there is no data of the distribution for Android 10 at the moment, but Google states that “updates from Android-9 to Android-10 are working much better, as evidenced by direct feedback from our OEM partners and silicon”. And that is true, a few days after the launch of Android 10 we have seen such as Nokia and OnePlus started to upgrade their mobile phones.
