Google's latest Android release, version 7.0 Nougat, has been installed on just 0.3 per cent of devices.
The latest stats on Google's developer portal reveal that Android 7.0 Nougat has made its way onto 0.3 per cent of devices in the 11 weeks since it was released.
This isn't all that surprising as, despite being released almost three months ago, Nougat is still available for only a handful of devices, namely Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones and the LG V20.
LG has started pushing out Nougat for the LG G5, but the majority of manufacturers - including Samsung, HTC, Huawei and Motorola - have yet to kick off rollouts of Android 7.0.
Marshmallow had a decent month, however, claiming 24 per cent of devices, up from 18.7 per cent in September.
Lollipop dropped slightly from 35 per cent to 34.1 per cent, KitKat fell from 27.2 per cent to 25.2 per cent, and Jelly Bean fell from 15.6 per cent to 13.7 per cent.
Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread both still account for 1.3 per cent of active Android devices, down from 1.4 per cent and 1.5 per cent respectively in October.
Android remains as fragmented as ever, but it also continues to dominate the smartphone market. Figures released by Strategy Analytics last week show that Android handsets claimed 88 per cent of all shipments in Q3, the highest market share ever for the Google OS.
A total of 328.6 million Android-powered phones were shipped in the three months ending in September, according to the firm, marking a 10.6 per cent leap compared with this time last year.
This came at the expense of its rivals. Apple's iOS slipped from 13.6 per cent in 2015 to 12.1 per cent in the quarter just gone, while BlackBerry and Windows Phone combined accounted for just 0.3 per cent of the market in Q3, down from 2.3 per cent this time last year.
