Will The New Update of Android 11 Beat Last Year’s Version for The Fastest Adoption Rate?

Google has struggled for the longest time to convince manufacturers to update from the older versions of Android to the newer versions but recently the adoption rates for the updates have been higher than they previously ever were, and Google credits the faster adoption rate to the improvements it has made in the past few years, like Android Oreo’s Project Treble and Android 10’s Project Mainline which makes it easier for hardware companies in making updates.

Last Year in September of 2019, Google’s new update Android 10 was installed on 100 million devices five months after its official launch, which was 28 percent faster than the update status for Android Pie making it their fastest deployed update ever in 2019.

But it looks like that this year in 2020, Google’s new update Android 11 has just barely beaten the last year’s trajectory, on the number of updates on the newer version compared to the older one last year but unfortunately we can’t achieve the exact data on the updates.

Must be thinking why is that?

Well, unfortunately Google has stopped providing its version distribution numbers which would put a clear light on exactly how much increase in newer updates we have from last year. Also, Google does not give out its roll out list on percentage basis, but per unit basis, which makes it harder for us to guess that exactly how much the roll out speed has improved compared to the overall growth of the smart phone market.

Even though we do have a clear picture of the idea that Android 11 has the most updates than any other of the previously updated versions making it the fastest roll out inarguably, by users if not by percentage, but according to the chart in comparison to last year’s update of Android 10 this may or may not be true in the next few weeks whilst looking at the trajectory.

Although Google’s numbers are rather dull in comparison to Apple updates each year, which at least consist of 81 percent of the new version of updates on all iOS devices which is an advantage for Apple as it has full control over hardware and software’s and fewer devices it supports compared to the Android devices.

But Google is making good progress with the updates in Android versions in comparison to its previous updates and hopefully will continue to make better updates in the future.
