Nougat finally passes KitKat as the third most popular version of Android

The new Android software, Android Oreo, is finally released, but only a handful of phone models like the Google Pixel and Nexus phones can experience the new software as of the moment. According to the latest numbers, Nougat now sits at 15.8%! The PiP mode lets users run tasks simultaneously on any size screen, while the Android system boosts battery life by minimizing background app activity. In July it registed just 11.5% of active users, and in the last month it has reached 15.8% (up from 13.5% last month).

As you may know, Oreo update triggered some issues that include Wi-Fi and bluetooth connection not working properly.

Pixel and Pixel XL users on Verizon are reportedly receiving a new update with build OPR3.170623.007 with 2017-09-01 Security Patch. There's still more befuddlement to be had, however, as the update has appeared for some titled "Android 7.1.2" (above, left).

Another praise worthy feature of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party, which helps the device to recover from constant bootloops.

A number of users have taken up this matter to the Google Product Forums as well as on Google+. This does not mean that the company will not launch the Nokia 9, which was speculated to be the flagship device from the company.

So it's safe to say that the update only contains the latest security security patch, just that it's mistakenly labeled as Android Nougat.

As soon as the Android Oreo became official in August, Google declared that all the devices that can support the update will get the same by the end of this year.

I've not had anything for any of my devices in the United Kingdom yet, and the images aren't yet up on the Google Developers site, but hopefully it won't be long now.
