Latest Android distribution numbers have been posted, Lollipop now up to 3.3%
Google has just posted the latest Android distribution numbers, and the biggest change we’re seeing from last month is that Lollipop has now reached 3.3% of all Android devices. Lollipop has struggled to even register on the charts in the past two months or so (only reaching about 1.6% of devices last month) and now it’s continuing to grow ever so slightly.
Jelly Bean has held the top spot for quite some time now, totaling 42.6% of Android devices. KitKat isn’t far behind, though, with 40.9% of devices (up from 39.7% from last month). Next on the list is Gingerbread, totaling 6.9%, down from 7.4% from last month. Ice Cream Sandwich is also on the decline, only being installed on 5.9% of devices, which is down from 6.4% from last month. Lastly, we have Froyo, which hasn’t budged for the past few months, holding a sturdy .4% of the chart.
It’s certainly not encouraging to see any devices run on a version before Jelly Bean, but at least we can say that KitKat and Lollipop are on the rise. Android 5.0 Lollipop has been steadily rolling out to a number of different devices, including the LG G3, HTCOne M7 and M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Edge, Motorola Moto X and G and many more. The update to Lollipop will only continue to make its way to devices from here on out, so we’ll definitely see another spike in the chart in next month’s numbers.
