Google updated the Android distribution numbers today for the month of May, showing Marshmallow continuing its steady climb, while the rest of the Android versions in the wild stay mostly the same. (more…)
The new Android distribution numbers are in for April 2016, with Marshmallow showing slow, but steady signs of growth. From last month to this month, Android 6.0 has jumped 2.3% to 4.6%. I know, I know, it’s been months since Marshmallow was released and this looks really bad, but it feels like we’re getting somewhere, especially now that Samsung has started updating many of its phones to Android 6.0.1.

Google updated its Android distribution numbers for the month of March, showing slight growth in the Marshmallow department. After just barely eclipsing 1% in February, we saw a jump to 2.3% this month. While I’m sure the world of Android fans would love to see that at 30 or 40%, that’s just not how Android works. (more…)
Google updated its Android distribution numbers this morning for the month of February, showing minor adoption of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In fact, Android 6.0 jumped from just 0.7% the month prior to 1.2%. That seems, at least to me, like pretty slow movement to the newest version of Android after almost four months of it being available. And when consider the fact that Android 6.0 was released as developer previews as early as last May, you have to wonder what is taking the world so long to update to it. (more…)
Google updated its Android Distribution numbers for the month of October, showing a slight bump in the number of phones running Android 5.0+ Lollipop to 23.5%. Last month, Lolli sat at 21% on the dot.
As for the other numbers, every other version is down, which makes sense as phones adopt new versions of Android: Kit Kat 38.9% (39.2%), Jelly Bean 30.2% (31.8%), Ice Cream Sandwich 3.4% (3.7%), Gingerbread 3.8% (4.1%), and Froyo 0.2% (0.2%). (more…)
Google updates its Android distribution numbers for September 2015 this morning, showing a jump for Lollipop (Android 5.0+) from 18.1% to 21%. While no where near 50% or a number that would make Apple and Tim Cook angry, we are closing in on the quarter mark. Hey, it’s something!
As for the rest of the Android versions, KitKat sits at 39.2%, Jelly Bean 31.8%, Ice Cream Sandwich 3.7%, Gingerbread 4.1%, and Froyo 0.2%. (more…)
Google took the month of July off, but today, went ahead and updated the Android OS distribution numbers for August.
In the two months since they last updated, Lollipop has seen a sizable jump from 11.6% to over 18%. Other than that, there hasn’t been much movement. KitKat barely moved up to 39.3% (from 39.2%), while Jelly Bean (37.4% to 33.6%), Ice Cream Sandwich (5.1% to 4.1%), and Gingerbread (5.6% to 4.6%) all dropped. (more…)
