As this reported in May, Google’s platform version statistics for the week ending May 1 showed that Android 4.4 KitKat was being used on 8.5 percent of devices while Jelly Bean was used by a combined 60.5 percent.

Recently, Chitika’s ad network released their own statistics showing that 37 percent of devices in North America used their site with KitKat installed. In April, just 10 percent of phones browsing Chitika’s ad network ran KitKat. Chitika’s statistic show that Samsung devices have the most KitKat users while Google phones were the first to get the latest update.
