Android Platform Distribution Numbers Updated, Lollipop More Than Doubles To 3.3% As Android 4.3 And Below Slowly Lose Ground

It's only been a month since Lollipop made its debut on the platform distribution chart, and it's making decent headway. Android 5.0 more than doubled its standing, bringing the total from 1.6% to 3.3%. Most of this bump can be attributed to firmware updates that have been rolling out to 2014's flagship phones and tablets. Surprisingly, KitKat also increased its hold by 1.2%, totaling 40.9% of all Android devices.

Since Lollipop and KitKat only account for a combined 2.9% shift, most of the remaining versions of Android lost ground pretty evenly.

Android Platform Distribution Numbers Updated, Lollipop Finally Shows Up At 1.6%

Last month's platform distribution numbers were a bit of a surprise in that Lollipop hadn't even broken the 0.1% threshold required for inclusion in the data. That changes this month, but adoption is still slow. Android 5.0 is showing up at 1.6% usage share, with very little movement elsewhere.

Google Updates Android Platform Distribution Numbers, KitKat Shows Big Gains And Lollipop Still Doesn't Make The Cut

The developer dashboard has been updated, and there's some big movement this month. In the post holiday window, KitKat is up a healthy 5.2% and Gingerbread drops another 1.3%. One thing you won't see on the chart is Lollipop.

Android Platform Version Numbers For November: KitKat Moves Up Another 5.7%, Just In Time For Lollipop

While Google did skip October, platform version numbers are back, this time for November. Back in September we saw KitKat's gains continuing, and this month seems little different - in the two months since September, KitKat added another 5.7%, or about 2.8% per month. This is a slightly decline in pace, to be sure. In September, KitKat added 3.6% in a one-month timespan, so 7.2%+ would have been needed to maintain that pace.

June Android Platform Distribution Numbers Released: KitKat Up To 13.6%, 4.2 And 4.3 Continue To Climb

Last month's Android platform distribution numbers showed a continuing steady rise of Android 4.4 in handsets worldwide, but this month's numbers mark a major jump - KitKat is up to 13.6% of all devices, from a mere 8.5% a month ago today. Updates to handsets likely explain some of the rise, though consumers replacing aging devices with updated phone like the HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5 are probably more likely candidates for such a rapid and significant rise in adoption.

Android Platform Distribution Numbers Updated – KitKat Climbs Ever Higher To 8.5%, Gingerbread Loses Another 1.6%

Google continues its monthly ritual of posting platform distribution numbers for Android. After getting a fairly late start, KitKat is keeping up its suddenly explosive pace by adding 3.2% to last month's 5.3%. This is largely due to a continual stream of updates to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Note 3.

The increase in KitKat's presence came at the expense of almost every older version of Android except for Jelly Bean 4.2, which actually rose 0.7%.

Google has made its monthly update to the developer dashboard with new platform distribution numbers, and KitKat is on a roll (finally). After making up only 2.5% of active Android devices last month, it's now at 5.3%. Yes, it more than doubled. Those continued Samsung updates probably have a lot to do with the jump.

Android Platform Distribution Numbers Updated - KitKat At 2.5%, Jelly Bean 62%, Gingerbread Down To 19%

Google has posted its monthly snapshot of the Android Platform Versions distribution, and things are, unsurprisingly, inching forward for KitKat and Jelly Bean. KitKat is up from a share of 1.9% last month to 2.5% this go around, likely owed to the widening rollout of Android 4.4 to the Galaxy S4 and a number of other devices.

Jelly Bean continued to gain ground, too, up slightly this month at 62% as compared to 60.7% in February, with the individual breakdown still heavily favoring Android 4.1 as opposed to 4.2 or 4.3.
