The Android Developers team recently released the latest figures pertaining to Android distribution, revealing the current usage of all versions of Google’s Android operating system during the one-week period that ended on March 7, 2016.
According to the latest statistics, the newest Android 6.0 ‘Marshmallow’ version now powers 2.3 percent Android devices. The new level of distribution of Android Marshmallow indicates that the uptake of the version has recorded a two-fold increase over the February distribution level of 1.2 percent.
Though the figures underscore only a 1 percent increase in the level of distribution of Android Marshmallow version from February to March, it reflects that the rise of the Marshmallow version between February and March has been notably higher than the 0.5 percent increase it witnessed between January and February.
Meanwhile, so far as the other Android versions are concerned, the latest figures from the Android Developers team show that the Android ‘Lollipop’ versions 5.0 and 5.1 together power nearly 36.1 percent of Android devices; thereby underscoring an increase in the versions’ 34.1 percent level of distribution in February.
The share of the Android 4.4 ‘KitKat’ version has dropped from 35.5 percent in February to 34.3 percent this month; while the share of Android ‘Jelly Bean’ has plunged from 23.9 percent to 22.3 percent, and that of Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ version dropped from 2.5 percent to 2.3 percent. Moving further back, the share of Android ‘Gingerbread’ dropped marginally from 2.7 percent to 2.6 percent; whereas the share of Android ‘Froyo’ remained unchanged at 0.1 percent.
