Which version of Android to use for automated tests

I’m choosing a stable version of Android for automated tests. Emulator on Android SDK, Appium, Selenium. Can you advise which Android version is more stable?

Ideally you’d test on multiple versions of android so you can pick up bugs that occur due to the version. If that is not possible though, probably the latest version is best to test on as that is the version that will likely have the most users. Choosing the more ‘stable’ version seems like the wrong choice since we are trying to find issues with the app which would most likely occur on less stable versions. And besides, all modern android versions are pretty stable.
