According to the company, most of the users of these devices have run the updates, with most of the phones being made by Samsung; 14 to be more specific, including the Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7 Edge, and others. Additionally, there are also devices from LG, Motorola, Vivo, Sony and Google itself, but that last one was to be expected since updates are first delivered to the company's own devices. 

As mentioned, users of these 42 devices are running updates released in the past two months. When the period of time is extended to three months, the number of devices rises above 100.
