The Android distribution numbers of been updated for the beginning of April, with Kit Kat (Android 4.4+) showing signs of growth. The newest version of Android now commands 5.3% of the pie, up from 2.5% last month. With that growth we are seeing a slight decline in Jelly Bean numbers to 61.4% from a flat 62.0%. In other words, the newest devices running the newest version of Android continue to run the newest version of Android.
Ice Cream Sandwich saw a decline to 14.3% (from 15.2%), as did Gingerbread (17.8% from 19.0%).

This evening, Google posted up the official Android distribution numbers. Last month, Jelly Bean creeped past the 50% mark, and this month, it seems that it hasn’t slowed down yet, now on 54.5% of devices up from 52.1%. As for the newest version of Android, Kit Kat (Android 4.4), it appears that it is currently on only 1.1% of devices, a somewhat dismal number, but there’s plenty of time for that number to grow.

Over the weekend, the Android team posted the latest round of data collection for their Android distribution chart. Last month we saw Jelly Bean finally creeping towards having a 50% share, a mark that seems to have taken forever to reach. This month, they did indeed crack the 50% mark, with 52.1% of Android devices now running Android 4.1+. Of course, this news comes a day after Google’s announcement of Kit Kat (Android 4.4), so while Jelly Bean adoption has risen, we’ll get to watch the slow incline of Kit Kat for the next two years.
Ice Cream Sandwich dropped to 19.8% from 20.6%, Gingerbread to 26.3% from 28.5%, and Froyo and Honeycomb are hanging on for dear life.

Late last night, the Android team updated their dashboards to reflect new platform distribution numbers as we head into October. As has been the trend over the last few months, Jelly Bean continues to expand its reach and is now on 48.6% of Android devices (up slightly from last month’s 45.1%). That doesn’t mean that 50% of the world is on 4.3, but that is a combined number of Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, since they all fall under the Jelly Bean name.
Ice Cream Sandwich now sits at 20.6%, Honeycomb remains alive at 0.1%, Gingerbread somehow still manages to hold 28.5%, and Froyo remains delightfully chilly at 2.2%.
With all of the world focused on Google’s unveiling of Kit Kat and Samsung’s big announcement, Google snuck out another update for the Android Distribution Charts. (more…)
