Android Nougat sees a strong growth in the latest Android distribution data

However, Google also releases a build of the developer preview before the launch that has lesser bugs and can be used by people on their smartphones.

The latest Android platform distribution data has been released by Google for the month of May which shows us that Android Nougat saw a good rise, even better than Marshmallow when it launched past year.

According to Gartner, Android powered over 352 million smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2016, accounting for almost 82 percent of the market share.

This means that the next beta build of Android O will be released within the next few months.

A new example of Android malware is discovered every 10 seconds, a new report has revealed.

The big issue with fragmentation has to do with updates.

The prevalence of malware is due, in part, to Android fragmentation, as users running older versions of the software are easier to target.

The findings of the report follow a number of recent instances where users have been infected with malware having downloaded apps from the Google Play Store.

To avoid malware, start with your app store. Instead of giving us something credible, the email asserts that the Google Play editorial team has some "exciting plans" to highlight select apps and provide them recognition.

For Android users who want to remain as safe from malware as possible, there are a few steps you can take.

Be Wary Of Third Party Apps - Third Party apps, which haven't been vetted by the Google Play app store are another way Android users can frequently put themselves at risk for infection.
