Windows 11 Market Share Increased to over 16%

According to the latest report from AdDuplex that Windows 11 got over 16.5% market share in January 2022 based on around 60,000 Windows 10 and11 PCs survey. While about 2 months ago in November 2021, Windows 11 only had 8.6% of all Windows computers. That means, Windows 11 is getting more and more popular.

Taking reference from the detailed report from AdDuplex, we see that Windows 11 gets 16.1% and the 0.4% are in the Insider programs. However, the two most popular Windows versions: Windows 10 21H1 and 20H2 decease to 26.8% and 26.3% separately.

“While Windows 11 has almost doubled its share, Windows 10 21H2 more than tripled in the same period,” says AdDuplex. “As many older PCs can’t upgrade to Windows 11, it will be interesting to see where these numbers settle over time.”

Now, we can expect the rise of Windows 11 market share as Microsoft has announced its final phase of distribution of Windows 11 is in the middle of 2022, which has been mentioned in the Microsoft Blog.

Current status as of January 26, 2022 (PT)

The upgrade offer to Windows 11 is entering its final phase of availability and is designated for broad deployment for eligible devices*. Since the launch of Windows 11 in October, we have seen strong demand and preference for Windows 11 with people upgrading their eligible PCs at twice the rate we saw for Windows 10. Based on this trend, we are advancing the pace of the rollout faster than we originally announced and entering the final phase of availability for Windows 11 ahead of our initial plan of mid-2022.

As Microsoft is keeping innovation on Windows 11, in the next preview version, we can also expect to get Android apps on Windows 11.
