More than five months have passed since the release of the mobile operating system Android 13, but it is installed on only 5.2% of Android devices, as evidenced by official Google statistics.

According to, Google used to inform developers every month about the distribution of different versions of Android, but in recent years such reports are published irregularly.

The last time such data was published was in August 2022, just before the actual release of Android 13. Google published analytics for the first time in 2023, which clearly shows the current distribution of different Android versions.
