Oreo appears to be the most popular with around 27 per cent of the total.
That’s closely followed by Nougat which is currently installed on around 18 per cent of all devices.
Google’s latest 9 Pie is starting to pick up pace with the OS now being used on 10.4 per cent of smartphones.
Along with now confirming these stats, Google has also given more insight into what new features will be coming to the next version of Android Q.
These include improved security and privacy as well as better compatibility with the new foldable phones that will be making their way onto the market later this year.
Live Caption brings real-time captions to media on your phone – videos, podcasts, and audio messages, across any app—even stuff you record yourself.
Best of all, it doesn’t even require a network connection — everything happens on the device, thanks to a breakthrough in speech recognition that Google made earlier this year.
The live speech models run right on the phone, and no audio stream ever leaves your device.
