Android Kitkat (4.4) It has ceased to be the most widely used version, has finally been advanced by Android Lollipop (5.0 and 5.1). More than one year has cost him to Lollipop to be the most widely used version. Google has just confirmed it with the new distribution of Android updates that you have just published today.
The 36,1% Android devices are updated to Lollipop. In particular, 16.9% lead Android 5.0 and 19.2% lead Android 5.1. Android KitKat for now becomes the second most widely used with the 34,2%.
Android Jelly Bean the third version remains more used, between Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 Add the 22,3%. The fourth place is Gingerbread with the 2,3%. In fourth place are the latest version of Android, to Marshmallow with 2.3%, the same percentage as Ice Cream Sandwich. Finally we encountered Froyo with 0.1%.
There are only two versions of Android which are gaining market share, as you might expect are the two most recent versions of the operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Marshmallow growth remains sluggish, it has gone from 1.2 per cent to 2.3 per cent in a month, but in the coming months will pick up speed thanks to the sale of new devices with this version of the series. Surely we have to wait a year to see a Marshmallow as the most widely used version.
