Android 13 is only installed on 5% of devices, several months after its release

Android 13 has been available in final version since August 2022 and the operating system does not attract crowds since it is only installed on 5.2% of devices. The data come Android Studio, Google’s development environment.

Android 13 is therefore installed on 5.2% of devices. At the same time, Android 12 and Android 12L have a market share of 18.9%. By comparison, the share was 13.5% last August, which is when the data was last updated. For its part, Android Oreo falls below 10%. Here is the detail :

  • Android 13: 5.2%
  • Android 12/12L: 18.9%
  • Android 11: 24.4%
  • Android 10: 19.5%
  • Android 9.0 Pie: 13.2%
  • Android 8.1 Oreo: 6.9%
  • Android 8.0 Oreo: 2.6%
  • Android 7.1 Nougat: 1.8%
  • Android 7.0 Nougat: 1.9%
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow: 2.8%
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop: 1.8%
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop: 0.3%
  • Android 4.4 Kit Kat: 0.7%

How to explain this “failure” for Android 13? It must be said that the deployment by smartphone manufacturers does not help. Samsung is a good student in having offered the update on several of its Galaxy. OnePlus also offered the new operating system. But a large number of phones still do not have the right.

In the past, when Google shared this data on its official website, it was quoted as being based on Android devices accessing the Google Play Store for a period of one week. If the data is now in Android Studio, it’s possible Google is relying on the same metric, though the group won’t say so publicly.
