Lollipop gaining market share but Kitkat is still the top used Android version



Every month Google releases it’s Andiron distribution data. Now they have released the data for the month of January.This data is collected upto January 4th. Android Lollipop adoption is increasing day by day . now it has been up to 32.6% from 29.5% in December.The main reason behind this is newly launched devices. All devices that are being launched are having at least Lollipop in them & very few of them are having Marshmallow.

Marshmallow is still crying with 0.7 % of devices.There is very slight change in the percentage change of Marshmallow which is just 0.2%.

Kitkat is still on top with 36.1 % of the devices running Kitkat which was 36.6 % in December. Android Jelly Bean adoption also saw a drop from 26.9% to 24.7%. Ice Cream Sandwich is down to 2.7%,while Gingerbread has fallen to 3%. Froyo 2.2 is running on just 0.2 % of the total Android devices around the globe.

Note: This data is gathered from the new Google Play Store app, which supports Android 2.2 and above, so devices running older versions are not included. However, in August, 2013, versions older than Android 2.2 accounted for about 1% of devices that checked in to Google servers (not those that actually visited Google Play Store).
