Google updated the Android distribution numbers to start the month of May, showing a solid jump for Kit Kat (Android 4.4+) from 5.3% in April to 8.5% this month. Thanks to that jump in Kit Kat, we are seeing a small decline in Jelly Bean, from 61.4% to 60.8%. 

The rest of the numbers all saw slight movement, as you would expect at this point in the game. Old phones continue to hang onto old builds of Android, like Gingerbread which dropped from 17.8% to 16.2%. Froyo and Honeycomb continue to stick on the list somehow, while Ice Cream Sandwich still commands 13.4% of the pie.

And yep, that’s that.
