The new software has been pushed out via Essential's developer site, fulfilling its promise back in October to quickly move users to the latest version of Android.
As you can see, Android 7 Nougat was the big victor in the November distribution chart with a gain of 2.8% over its October results.
Are you fed up of waiting for new Android versions? As for why uptake is slowing, Luu deduces that there could be three possible explanations: Android growth is slowing, device turnover is slowing and/or fewer devices are receiving updates. This feature is activated when a device runs low on storage space, and this is how it works - after a length of time specified by Android, applications that haven't been used in a while are marked as inactive.
He writes: "In May 2017, Google announced that there are over two billion active Android devices". Android Oreo released in August this year has seen an increase from last month as well, but, it's just 0.1%.
"At this point, we should expect that there are more than one billion devices that are two years out of date!"
As it turns out, most other phone makers have confirmed that at least the flagship phones will get the newest Android as an update before the end of the year. While Android 7.0 rose by 1.9 percent, to 14.2 percent, Android 7.1 saw a smaller 0.4 percent rise to 1.6 percent. Now some of you might be confused as, phones like OnePlus, Samsung and some Android skins will indicate to you which app is draining your battery, but with this new update, it will become a feature included with the Android operating system rather than manufacturer enabled feature.
